We are living at the very end of Earth’s history as we know it.

The headlines that flash across our screens with each passing day become more and more appalling with every breaking update. There are famines, earthquakes, civil unrest, protests and uprisings, wars and rumors of war…the list goes on and on. These are all signs that Jesus is soon to come.

“Nations are angry, by this we do know. Jesus is coming again. Knowledge increases, men run to and fro. Jesus is coming again!”

However, before he comes, he has determined that ever inhabitant of the earth will have heard the good news of salvation and have the opportunity to place their trust in the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Yet there are many all around the world who still have not heard. Worse yet, there are many in our neighborhoods who have not heard. As a matter of fact, there are some on our street, or possibly our immediate next door neighbors who have never heard the good news of the gospel.

“…and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”

It is for this reason that we introduce this year’s theme for our annual PELC Conference:

M28: Refocus

Our primary focus in ministry is communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ; The Great Commission. This year’s conference will be all about our mandate to preach and teach and win people to Christ. That’s why we exist. We make disciples. Not converts. Not proselytes. We make disciples. It’s time to refocus on that mission. We preach. We baptize. We teach. We make disciples. Let’s get back to what we’re really here for. Let’s refocus on the mission! Reserve your spot and register today! 

Also, don’t miss out on this year’s special additions:

Two-day Deacons & Elders Conference

Bible Instructors Certification Training
