Long-term Care & Elder Law Issues in Oregon
Wes Fitzwater

Conference Office Chapel

As we reach middle age, retirement and then beyond, we discover new and critical concerns that come with aging. Wes Fitzwater, one of Oregon’s leading Elder Law attorneys will help identify these concerns and discuss ways to protect yourself and your family. For example, few individuals or couples have enough income to pay for the high cost of long-term care ($3,500-$9,500 per month). We will discuss long-term care planning, asset protection and Medicaid in Oregon, including planning for a single person, how to financially protect the Well Spouse, the Oregon Income Cap, transfer of asset penalties, spousal impoverishment laws (spend down), and strategies to protect the family home. We will also discuss the tools available to assist individuals and families when facing incapacity, including Power of Attorney, Revocable Living Trusts, and Guardianships and Conservatorships.

Welcoming Them Home
Mark Hubbell

Zull Hall

Prison ministry is much more than evangelism. Many incarcerated men and women are converted to Christ and begin a serious walk of discipleship in prison. Most of them are eventually released and return to the community. This workshop will focus on practical ways local churches can continue helping these men and women to reach their full potential in Christ. The Church has a crucial role to play!

Unlocking the Code for Brain Healing – Part 2
Wes Youngberg

Mt. Hood Auditorium – Holden Convention Center

Of the 318 million people currently living in the United States, 45 million will develop Alzheimer’s. A recent report shows that Alzheimer’s is now the third leading cause of death in the US. In order to get effective improvements in Alzheimer's Disease we must address its underlying causes and focus on a combination of functional and lifestyle medicine strategies. Studies published by the UCLA Center for Alzheimer's Research have shown that up to 88% of mild dementia and early Alzheimer’s may be reversed in six months after initiating a comprehensive lifestyle medicine focused program. We'll talk about the six subtypes of Alzheimer’s as well as insulin resistance of the brain.

Sola Fide
Ty Gibson

Plaza Pavilion

Faith alone is the subjective, reciprocal response to God’s grace by which righteousness is made a living reality in our lives. Before our faith becomes active toward God, God’s faithfulness is active toward us. He believes in us before we believe in Him. He sees our potential in Christ and loves us into the dignified creatures of selfless love we were meant to be all along.
