Northern Plains District Conference 2022

EFCA Northern Plains District Conference: Feb 17-19

WHAT'S NEXT?

February 17-19, 2022

It is likely that you have asked yourself that question at sometime during the past year. There are of course the national level issues that have impacted our churches: COVID-19, political polarization, civic and social unrest. But, there are also many issues that come from much closer to home. Our region has faced a serious drought during this past summer. Other challenges include job change/loss, health issues, family struggles, or hardships. All of it may leave you asking "WHAT'S NEXT?" Our guest speaker will be Karl Vaters teaching pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship in Orange County California, speaking on "Leading the Post-pandemic Church"
