HOPE in the midst
Our aim is to authentically and gently descend together through real-life stories of suffering to tell the truth of the resurrection power and goodness of Jesus. There is HOPE in the midst of suffering.

About the Event
Go to heritagenw.org/conferences to purchase your tickets. $30/person; ticket price includes lunch on Saturday.
My prayer is that anyone in the midst of suffering can experience a fresh outpouring and revelation of the HOPE found in Jesus. Through creative expression, stories, songs of lamentation and praise as well as sound Biblical teaching on a theology of suffering you will be brought through an experience that echoes Jesus's work on the cross, His death, and His resurrection. The event theme is adapted from the U-Shaped Diagram of Healing coined by Cathy Loerzel. This conference will directly address the impacts of suffering including sexual abuse, grief/loss, and suicidal ideations.
Pastor Bryan Davenport -- God Hates Suffering; Theology of Suffering

WHY NOW? Late winter has been notorious for episodes of depressed mood, death urges, and hopelessness. No matter the contributing factors that are causing feelings of overwhelm, dread, hopelessness, anger, or numbness (to name a few) there is HOPE in your story and for your future.
WHO is the conference for? Ages 12 and up; men and women. It's highly recommended to bring someone you have a relationship with who NEEDS HOPE right now, questions God's nature in the midst of evil/pain, and/or who desires to be in a place of worship that honors the presence of the Holy Spirit.
