Welcome to the NEW Conference!

The New Conference is designed to recharge your stores of enthusiasm and energy, to renew your faith, to reinforce your calling. Experience keynotes, breakouts, and worship that will fill you with fresh ideas and reconnect you to the Limitless Source of the church’s power to change the world.

I believe that the local church is the best way to give hope and help to our broken world, both in the neighborhoods that surround us directly and to the far reaches of the globe. I also believe that the success of the local church rises and falls on the clarity of vision, the perseverance of leaders, the availability of resources, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Toward these ends, I pray this conference fuels, restores, and envisions you for the next leg of your own journey to advance the fullness of God’s plan for forgiveness and freedom!

Blessings,

Cal Rychener
Senior Pastor, Northwoods Church

PASTORS DAY

A FREE, OPTIONAL EXTRA DAY OF MINISTRY FOR ALL CHURCH STAFF AND SPOUSES

Wednesday, August 15


Restoring the Call for Personal Integrity

We’ve all heard the expression “Walk the walk and talk the talk.” The essence of that axiom is the essential truth that our lives must be an example and model for the people we are seeking to reach and disciple. Larry Stockstill will teach four sessions designed to encourage and renew your soul. Find the power you need to stand firm even when you’re tired, even when the work seems to never end, even when the enemy tempts you.

Thursday Night, August 16

Come back after dinner on Thursday for an evening of musical worship and powerful teaching designed to invite the Spirit of God to move among us.
