2019 Conference Theme
Grace That Works
Grace that Works! Isn’t that a contradiction? We are saved by grace, not works. Yes, it’s true, but Peter tells us that if we have received grace from God, it is a grace to be shared (1 Peter 4:10-11).  We share not out of compulsion, but empowered by God. The grace we’ve received transforms us and will transform the world. Join us at the 2019 Church Ministries Conference as we discover again God’s grace that works in us.
