REPORT from Men's Conference

“Activate” was the theme of this year’s Midwest District Men’s Conference. Our focus was to call men to Biblical Leadership in the workplace, in the home and in the church. Over 40 men from Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa gather together at Timber Lakes Camp and Retreat to fellowship and grow together. Teaching was headed by Pastor Scott Denham, Pastor Andy Petro, Jeff Turner and Elias Martinez. Throughout the weekend we came together for powerful times of worship and teaching, fellowshipped over meals and activities and shared together through a communion service. Although this weekend gave us more tools on leadership, we recognize that it is really the start of long conversation. We hope to continue it at next year’s conference.

REPORT from Women's Conference

There were over 80 women in attendance and the atmosphere was one of exceeding gratefulness for being able to gather, connect, worship and seek God together. Extended time to spend with each other and explore camp was given a hearty thumbs up. Also, quiet time to listen to God and share from that time opened the doors even wider for full “Bodied” ministry flowing in and thru committee, worship team, speaker and attendees alike!

Our speaker Amanda McKim, of Calvary Baptist in Clarinda, shared encouraging, admonishing and exhorting messages from II Chronicles Ch. 2, Philippians Ch.4, Luke 6:46 and chapters 2 &3 in the book of Hosea, in spite of having to endure much pain to do so and it was not lost on us! The attendees and worship teams were of mixed denominational backgrounds which lent itself to deeper expressions of worship and seeking Him with less denominational walls, which was, in of itself, a sweet glimpse of Heaven!

Needless to say, it was a much needed refreshing and renewal for the committee and attendees. . . seeking HIS face with HIS people and all for HIS Glory!!!

Melissa Potts, Women's Ministry Director
