Ancient Words Ever True

Romans 15:4 states, “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope”. In an era when Biblical literacy continues to falter, especially with the Old Testament, it’s time to ignite a renewed passion for the rich content and purpose of the Old Testament. These profound Holy Spirit inspired Ancient Words are full of the Gospel and hope. Our goal at this tears Shepherds conference will be to stir a passion for the understanding and use of the Old Testament in our lives today.

Our key note speaker will be speaking on, “Using the Old Testament in our Lives Today”. Sessions will include, Why the OT is important today and then lessons on the use of OT narratives, the Psalms and Wisdom Literature. And as always there will be great singing, other practical workshops and opportunities to mingle and get to meet some new Christian friends.  You want to miss this years conference!!
