Ministry Conference

After much prayer and discussion, we have decided not to hold the conference this year as planned. This was not an easy decision, but we felt it was prudent to make this decision as early as possible. We are tremendously disappointed that we will not be holding the conference this summer, but we are hopeful that we may be able to hold the conference in the future.
