2020 Bible Conference


Our conference theme this year came from the words of Joseph in Genesis 50:20 – “But as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.
Our speakers addressed the lives of Joseph, Jesus, and other followers of God who experienced evil but were able to discern the hand of God in their circumstances.

“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. The time will come when they will not endure sound teaching; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth, turning aside to fables. But you, be sober in all things; endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” — 2 Timothy 4:2-5
