Reversing Killer Diseases with Fork & Knife - Part 3
Hans Diehl
Mt. Hood Auditorium – Holden Convention Center

Reversing Coronary Heart Disease! – Did you know that as a church we no longer have to rely on the dietary counsel of E. G. White given more than 150 years ago? We now have the scientific evidence that is overwhelming in demonstrating that a diet centered on foods coming out of the hand of the Master Designer can prevent, arrest, and even reverse many of our modern killer diseases. Get updated on the therapeutic value of a plant based whole food centered diet in turning around excess weight (Wednesday), type 2 diabetes (Thursday), and coronary heart disease (Friday) while reducing the costs for medicines and foods, reducing the ecological foot print and practicing compassion towards all creation.


Identity Matters – We're Under Attack
Wayne Blakely
Zull Hall

Now that I’ve accepted God, do my temptations dictate my identity? How does identity shape my relationship with God? Does my victory in Christ guarantee that I will marry someone of the opposite sex? Are we accepting the language of others over the principles of God's Word? Almost daily, someone somewhere is trying to reshape how you think. We’re at a precipice where there are those today who equate human knowledge to God’s knowledge. Let’s take a look at the only place where we are safe. Who does God say that I am?

Serpentology 2.0: The Dark Art of Seduction
Ricardo Whyte

Cascade Room B/C – Holden Convention Center

Any military leader will tell you that the success of an offensive or defensive campaign largely rests on the intelligence or reconnaissance obtained concerning the enemy. And we are battling an enemy oblivious to his tactics and strategies. Sadly the consequences of our ignorance is literally deadly… Until now. In this workshop we are going to leverage what we learned about our neurobiology and the science of wholeness to understand how we got tricked in the first place; how those tricks are being used on us today; and how we can defeat the tricks that are being hurled at us using of all things – God’s “secret place”!
