Paul's Missionary Journeys
Saturday, January 4, 2014

The gospel message of Jesus Christ transformed Paul from a persecutor to a preacher. For three decades God used him to spread that message across the Roman Empire, preaching and teaching the Scriptures. The New Testament book of Acts describes three extended trips Paul and others took, presenting the Word of God. At this year's conference we would like to learn principles for ourselves from Paul's three missionary journeys.

Conference Schedule
The conference will be held at Ramapo High School (directions below),
starting with a time of prayer at 9:30 A.M. and concluding
with a light supper at 5:00 P.M.

There will be activities for young people at 7:00 P.M. at the chapel building.
