Kingdom Life Conference


091618-7.jpg

OCTOBER 27-28, 2018

God’s Kingdom isn’t just a thing we experience on Sunday mornings and then vanishes during the week. On the contrary, His kingdom is changing every part of the world around us; everywhere we go. As followers of King Jesus, we bring His kingdom to work. We bring it to school. We bring it into our homes.

At the Kingdom Life Conference, we’re seeking to understand what God’s Kingdom really is and how that reality should affect every facet of our lives. Join us as we welcome Skye Jethani along with other speakers who will point us to what God's Word says about His Kingdom.
