One of the event’s organizers, Jody Van Kley says that since 1935, the annual late-summer gathering has served countless participants, helping Christians grow toward living out the transforming power of Christ’s love.

She says it all started as a tent meeting, eighty-one years ago. She says there is deep refreshing in ancient truth from contemporary Christian leaders. World-class Christian musicians and worship leaders sweeten the gathering.

She tells us about the opening concert on Saturday night.

There is no registration fee. Conference leaders say it “continues by faith, depending on God’s provision through those who benefit.”

Donations are received to meet Conference expenses, maintain the campus, and support their local, year-round ministries.

Transportation, housing, and meals are on your own, but the conference is free.
