North and East Pastors' Conference 2018

When: 
Monday, April 30, 2018 - 04:00 pm EDT to Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - 04:00 pm EDT
Where: 

Doubletree by Hilton Bay City – Riverfront
One Wenonah Park Place
Bay City MI  48708

Event Description: 

Our secular culture today has many similarities with that of ancient Corinth. How does Paul's message of justification by grace and the cross of Christ from his letters to the Corinthian congregation speak to our culture today? What insights does it give us?

Register now and plan to join our speaker, Dr. Mark Seifrid (professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis) as we seek to answer this question together at the conference. See you in Bay City!
