NEDA Annual Conference
October 22-23, Camp Spofford, Spofford, NH
“Establishing A Gospel Presence Through Word and Deed”
Plan to join your ministry colleagues October 22-23 at Camp Spofford for the annual conference of the New England District. This is a wonderful opportunity to be spiritually refreshed, connect with other NEDA ministry leaders, and consider together how God is sending us to make disciples in New England. There will be three plenary sessions with teaching and worship, training workshops, and a business meeting to consider district vision and ministry.
This years’ theme is “Establishing a Gospel Presence in Word and Deed.” David Gustafson, Chair of the Missions and Evangelism Department at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, will be our keynote speaker during the plenary sessions. He will give three messages: “Witness in Word and Deed,” “Gospel Praxis in a Pluralistic Society,” and “Faithful Presence and Urgency.” We will also hear from fellow NEDA pastors about how they are seeking to establish a Gospel presence through word and deed in their local communities.
Registration is now open through the Camp Spofford website. The first ten NEDA ministry leaders who register will receive David Gustafson’s new book, Gospel Witness: Evangelism in Word and Deed. Also, the first five NEDA ministry leaders who have never attended one of our annual conferences will receive the book (1 copy per church) Sign up soon!
