South and East Pastors’ Conference 2021

HUNTED: Deliver Us From Evil

May 11, 2021 - May 12, 2021
Frankenmuth, MI

Hunted is an imposing and intimidating word. As much as we would like to ignore the thought, we live in a world where a roaring lion is stalking us and those we have been charged to shepherd.

We invite you to gather as we talk about the problem of evil in the world and how to both minister and recover from ministering to those who are hunted. Rev. Dr. Robert Kolb will speak on the living redeemed in a sin-cursed world and Mrs. Christie Hansard will provide us with tools and resources to assist both our flock and ourselves with this struggle. Join us!
