How these events came about
In August 2013 we decided to have a conference about The Jesus Movement.
The purpose was to take an objective look to see if there were some lessons we could learn from our past.
We went ahead and set a date for October 26th. When we started making plans there was no way of knowing what was going to be happening at that very same time:
• On October 16-18th John MacArthur hosted The Strange Fire Conference at his church in Sun Valley, California. His conference was about his take on the Jesus Movement and some of the things he and others saw that resulted from it.
• October 27th was Chuck Smith’s Memorial Service in Costa Mesa. Chuck was considered by many to be the “father’ of The Jesus Movement. When we set the October date for our conference none of this was on our radar screen. Suddenly, there was much focus on The Jesus Movement.
I’m thinking our gathering together last October was very timely. As soon as our time ended people were saying,
“We have to have more of these !!!”
I agreed and still do agree….thus….
We are having our next conference on April 5th. Please take a look at the invite and register if you are going to be able to make it. There are a few preparations that need to be made (food, seating, etc). Two more things….Don’t feel like this is only for those who lived during The Jesus Movement…It’s not. It IS about lessons that hopefully we all can learn from those days. The other thing is whether you are coming or not the flyer will take you to a site where you can watch last October’s conference.
Hoping to see you there,
