Here is some important information for you as you plan to attend the Holston Evangelism Conference. The Witness Team is meeting tomorrow (Thursday) in White Pine Tennessee to finalize plans and I hope to have more information posted here by late tomorrow night.
Blessings and please help me pray for what I believe is a vision that God has given us for New Life and Excitement in Christ. This could start in Holston and Spread Far and Wide.
Feb 19-20 Holston Evangelism Conference – This event will be held at Cokesbury Center in Knoxville, TN.
We welcome the Rev. Rudy Rasmus and Bishop James Swanson to lead us through this inspirational and motivating event. We will celebrate the past year’s theme and covenant to “Offer Them Christ” and to invite Holston to the next steps toward Pentecost 2010. Friday: Optional Mission Outreach (“Grace bags” to Knoxville Homeless) 3-5; Registration 5-7; Session I begins 7pm. Bishop Swanson will conclude the conference by 3pm on Saturday.
40 Days of Prayer and Preparation — beginning on Feb 23rd, we will encourage every congregation to pray,fast and ask God for a burden for the lost. Churches may organize specific prayer groups, teaching or preaching about prayer and fasting, or other creative Holston ways of preparation. The Witness Team will provide a 40 Day Prayer Guide which will be daily devotions written by lay and clergy members of our Conference. At this time we are working on the best delivery of these guides, but at the least we will be emailing copies to local church pastors and designated leaders for copying and distribution.
The Witness Team is asking that every Pastor and Lay member who has a blog to add the daily devotional to your church and personal blogs.
The cost will be $30 per person with a discount for groups of 7 or more. The cost includes lunch on Saturday.
