Ministry Expo - 5:30 PM

You're invited to join us for the "Ministry Expo"
All Christians have a common ministry: to proclaim the good news and make disciples. We all have a unique collage of life experiences, talents and spiritual depth. That means that while we all share in the common ministry goal, how it is played out in our personal lives differs greatly.
At the Ministry Expo you will be able to see:
- Some of the many ways God is ministering to the world through your fellow brothers and sisters.
- Ask questions of each ministry featured: How to get started, how to help, prayer needs etc.
- Most importantly, you may be inspire to launch into a personal ministry of your own, as the Spirit leads!
The "Expo" will take place on Friday evening in the pre-assembly outside of the main ballroom at the Marriott. Stop by to learn various ways of fulfilling the commandment given to every believer and reach out to the world for the sake of the Savior.

Nothing is Wasted
Romans 8:28 “All things work together for good to those who love God.” This doesn’t mean everything that happens is good. It simply means that God can take our mistakes and create something beautiful. Whatever situation you find yourself in, whatever mistakes you have made in your past, all the time that seems wasted, God can redeem and use for good.
