The Church as a Refuge -- One Day Conference

Thu, April 4, 2019

Many in our churches and communities bear emotional and spiritual scars from abuse received from those in power. How do we steward our God-given place of authority to ensure our churches are a safe harbor? This one day conference is designed for pastors, church staff, and leaders at any level in the body of Christ.

With renowned guest speaker, Diane Langberg, this is a wonderful opportunity for your church to connect deeply to the Father’s heart and come to understand more about the misuse of power, abuse, and how the Church can respond with specific help.
