Called to Power
Dan Linrud

Mt. Hood Audtitorium – Holden Convention Center

Acts 2:1-13—The early Church started with an explosion of power. We long to have the same kind of power in our lives and congregations that launched Christ’s church in Acts. What was it? Why did Christ give it? What is it for? And How do we get it today?

A Life That is Useful For God: Lessons From 2 Timothy

Sex Offenders in the Faith Community - Part 1

Cory Jewell Jensen

Cascade Room – Holden Convention Center

We will cover information related to how and why adults sexually abuse children, common seduction or, “grooming tactics” used by offenders and factors that make churches particularly vulnerable. The presentation will also address reasonable child safety policies, suggestions for safety planning with “known” offenders and specialized prevention programs for employees, volunteers and parents. By taking the time to learn more about child sexual abuse and the people who commit these crimes, you will be joining a growing number of Christians who are becoming better educated about protecting children and safeguarding our church.


Reaching Out

Wayne Blakely

Zull Hall

After years of silence, how do we share the “love in truth” message God has commissioned us with? In a postmodern world, many have cheapened the definition of “love” to simply mean permission. Too often, we’ve become comfortable in sin and no longer address the great need of Christ triumphant in our lives. Spiritually, we need love as well as knowledge – when working with others, we need to share both love and knowledge.


2:30pm - 4:00pm

Reversing Killer Diseases With Fork & Knife - Part 2
Hans Diehl

Reversing Diabetes! – 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?
