Message from conference president Chad Harms:
“Ministry can be exhilarating. Ministry can be depressing. Serving God through the church comes with moments of great fulfillment, but also with moments of confusion, tension, disappointment, and sadness. It seems that for every heartwarming story of a life given to Jesus there is a story of heartbreak. The ups and downs of ministry call for us to answer an important question: How do we keep passionately and joyfully doing this?
“This year’s Pastor/Layman Conference seeks to answer this question by calling into focus our most fundamental purpose, the purpose of glorying God. Through moments of celebration and moments of struggle we keep going because we understand how glorious, and deserving of glory, God is. No matter the results, our lives and our ministry are soli deo gloria.
