Bring Your Congregation to Columbus!

Summer is often an anticipated season with more daylight, relaxed schedules, and new destinations. June 2018 will likely be that for many. You have an opportunity to make Columbus, Ohio, the destination and to receive inspiration, encouragement, and connection while breaking away from the normal routine.

Join us in Columbus for the third of our Regional Conventions 2018! Dr. Timothy Clarke, the staff, and lay leaders of First Church of God—City of Refuge are planning now to host us with excellence.

Our first two regional conventions, in Phoenix and Oklahoma City were in beautiful host church settings with people attending from all over the country.  The next three will surely be just as successful and we want you to have the experience.

The thing I’ve enjoyed most about being here has been connecting with friends old and new, people from many stages of my life who have spoken life into me. It’s been really great being with the family of God. —Kevin Stiffler (Tulare, CA; PHX attendee)

The conference was great. This was my first regional conference and it was very meaningful for me. Great sermons and break-out sessions and fellowship. —Sandy Albright Bath (Bartlesville, OK; OKC attendee)

With the group discount, 10 or more can register for just $49 and experience the breadth and depth of two days of main sessions, electives, and connections with people from across the nation. While the five regionals were planned to create greater access through the variety of locations, we are finding that people from Indiana are traveling to Phoenix, and people from Oregon are traveling to Florida! The convention is a great opportunity to drive nearby or to travel to a new location. So, whether Columbus is in your backyard or is a bit of a trek for you, consider joining us. Bring others from your congregation along, too!

Consistent with all five regionals, Tuesday will start with a main session led by Ben Hardman and Gravity Leadership, focusing on making disciples. The host church will offer four electives later in the day with a focus on community involvement, community partnerships, and executive leadership. A credentials training and CARE seminar will also be available. Jim Lyon, Jo Anne Lyon, and Jeff Whye will share once again in Columbus and be joined by Harvey Carey and host pastor, Timothy Clarke.

Unique to the Columbus regional is the ONE Event to be held Wednesday evening, June 20, through the afternoon of Thursday, June 21. ONE is a student ministry event that is co-sponsored by the Hispanic Council (Concilio Hispano), International Youth Convention (IYC), and the National Inspirational Youth Convention (NIYC). In April 2017, over 200 students and their leaders gathered in Indianapolis for the first ONE event to combine the efforts of these three groups to worship and serve together.
