Arise Shine Conference
ARISE SHINE 2018
There is one thing that distinguishes the people of God from all other people: God's presence in our midst. The darkness in our culture is not an indicator that the Church's time has come and gone, but is a backdrop for the power and glory of God to be put on display through His people. We have been called as salt and light in this hour to rise up with boldness and proclaim the Kingdom of God to the ends of the earth. The very same God who created the universe and set life into motion lives inside of us, and if He can do impossible wonders in the cosmos through a mere whisper, imagine what He can do through you! We invite you to join us at Arise Shine 2018 as we gather together to seek the Lord, be filled with fresh vision, be renewed in our strength, and become further equipped for the work of the Kingdom to which we have been called.
This year we are excited to have Jeremy Riddle, Cory Asbury and Steffany Gretzinger of Bethel Music leading us in worship.
