Join Me at the Courageous Living Conference, November 6

Dear friends,

It’s not often you get to meet men who have literally risked their lives for Jesus.  Particularly when you live in a smaller population area like the Verde Valley.  

That’s why I thank the Lord for my friend David Witt hosting the Courageous Living Conference in Cottonwood on Saturday, November 6th.   Even as Christians in the supposedly “free” West, we are often bound by spiritual chains of fear that hold us back from boldly sharing the gospel with the non-Christians who surround us.  At this conference, we’ll have the chance to be encouraged to walk in freedom, by men who have tasted more danger than many of us ever will.

You must have a ticket to attend; but if you pre-register online, you get a discount.  

Hope to see you there!  (And if you can’t attend, would you pray for those of us who are there, that God will challenge, convict, and change us?)


(P.S. I apologize if you receive duplicates of this announcement.)

Additional information from David:

During the conference the speakers will address their messages from Acts chapters 3 and 4. The four main messages will be in this order: Courageous Faith, Courageous Repentance, Courageous Truth, and Courageous Witness. We invite you to begin to read over these chapters, pray for God to prepare your heart and bless every aspect of this discipleship conference. Many more faith building activities will fill the rest of the day.
Elementary age children will be learning some of the same principles in the Courageous Kids conference being held simultaneously in another building. Likewise the adolescences have the Courageous Youth track. They will join the main sessions in the morning and then at lunch they have some special activities planned for their growth.
The conference is scheduled from 8:30am to 5:30pm. We have a few special events planned throughout the day. Starting at 7:30am we open the doors for coffee, fellowship and prayer. At 8:00am we are having a pastors’ lead prayer session in the sanctuary. (If you are a pastor and would like to participate, please let us know.) To add some fun we are having some door prizes. One will be an airplane ride for two with Russell Stendal on Sunday afternoon, November 7. (You must be present at the concert to win.) We are also having a silent auction to raise funds for the courageous believers in Colombia. All the ministries (Spirit of Martyrdom, Youth 4 The Kingdom, Radio Shine, Colombia For Christ, The Voice of the Martyrs) have donated unique and valuable items for auction. We will take a love offering for any conference expenses that have not been covered and the remaining proceeds will be donated to the courageous believers in Colombia through Russell Stendal’s ministry called, Colombia For Christ. Last of all, we hope to end the conference on a very high note with celebration through music. A special concert is being held by a Romanian/American band and youth choir from 4:30-5:30pm. We hope you do not miss this unique experience. Please feel free to contact us with any other questions.
