Our church family invites you to a Soul-Winning Conference April 19th - 22nd The goal of the conference is to help Christians share our faith without fear. The final command Jesus gave us before He ascended to Heaven was to go into all the world and preach the gospel. We want to help train and equip the saints to share the gospel message with the world. Pastor Peter Lopez, from Faith Baptist Church in Avon, IN will present at this conference. The messages on Sunday will begin with Sunday school at 9:30 followed by the morning service at 10:30. After a break for lunch, we will resume for a 1pm service. The services on Monday through Wednesday begin at 7pm. We are encouraging pastors and members of other churches to attend this conference. We understand that you may already have a home church with services on Sunday and Wednesday, which is why the witnessing techniques will be emphasized on Monday and Tuesday. If you have any additional questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we don't share our faith, Christianity is only ONE generation from extinction.

Produced off-Broadway in 1990, it came to Broadway in 2004, winning five Tony Awards.
