For God and Truth 2017: Prayer


Regardless of the themes, all truly biblical learning must come in the context of worship. Head, heart, and hand must be connected together to effectively serve God.

To this end, every conference day begins with singing, a morning devotion, and corporate prayer. Gospel love and fire is the only effective and lasting foundation for conforming our every thought to the pattern of Christ and His Word.

This year’s topic explores the importance and blessing of prayer in the private and corporate life the Christian. With free afternoons, sight-seeing, athletic activities, and several meals hosted at TFPC, this conference will prove to be a wonderful avenue for fellowship, knowledge, encouragement, and most importantly growing closer to the image of our Savior.
