Announcing the 2018 Family Conferences!
The theme has been selected. The speakers are being confirmed. Excitement is mounting as preparations continue for the 2018 Family Conferences! Several new changes will be apparent at next year’s conferences.Big Sandy conference in April and the Sacramento conference in July. New this year is a June conference at the Northwoods Conference Center near Watersmeet, Michigan. Often referred to simply as “the Northwoods,” many people have attended other conferences, Journeys, and events at the peaceful, remote center over the years. However, June 2018 will mark the first time a Family Conference has been held at this much-loved location. Within a week or two of the news getting out about this new conference location, half of the on-site lodging was booked. There are still rooms and camping options available.
Another new change will be seen in the Big Sandy conference schedule. The conference will start one day earlier, with an evening session on Monday, April 23. This will allow nearly the same amount of sessions without having the sessions go quite as late in the evenings. This schedule change will only affect the Big Sandy location (April 23–28). The Northwoods Family Conference is scheduled for June 5–9, and the Sacramento Family Conference will be July 3–6.Dr. Josef Tson experienced during his many years in and out of the Communist prisons in Romania. Yet, as he will share at this year's conferences, God's love is greater than evil and casts out fear. Scripture states, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear" (I John 4:18). Dr. Tson will explain how the fear of death is conquered when we—with trust in God—willingly laying down our lives for others. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Gil and Kelly Bates, Joe Norvell, Peter Magnuson, Scott Aniol, Steve Scheibner, and Larry Guthrie. Please check each conference location for the speaker lineup.
