Our Kingdom Now conference with Ed McGlasson is going to be a great event. Ed has been a friend for many years and is one of my favorite speakers. He’ll make you laugh and cry at the same time. Ed is a long time student of the impact fathers make on the family, the church and society. He is a dad himself par excellence and will stir your heart concerning the importance of having a dynamic relationship with our loving Heavenly Father.

Ed says, “It is a tragic reality that many of us never experience the solid, securing presence of a loving father. But God promised that He would not leave us orphans, that everyone who believes becomes an adopted son or daughter of a loving Father in heaven.”

Ed will speak to the women on Friday evening. On Saturday morning and afternoon Ed will speak to men and women alike. Whether you are married or single, I believe it will be a monumental event for our church.

We have not had a conference culture in our church for many years. A dear friend of mine and a long time member of HVC came to me several months ago and said he felt the Lord leading him to talk to me about inviting Ed McGlasson to our church. As we visited about this prospect, I became more and more excited about Ed coming to us. Ed has a prophetic voice and things burn hotter at conferences than at our regular church services.

It is my conviction that as you take a step of faith and show up for our conference, you will experience in a new way or maybe for the first time the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit. Come with your heart expectant and faith filled. I believe there are many of you that God has a word for or even a new experience of His dynamic a powerful presence.

Remember, we want to equip an army of fully devoted disciples who extend the Kingdom of God as they experience and express the compassion and truth of the Lord Jesus.

Nothing can replace experience. Like the Psalmist said, “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.”

I love you all and hope to see you at our Kingdom Now conference.
