2 Peter 1:3 tells us that God, through his word, has granted us everything we need for  both life and godliness. The call of every Christian is to live in obedience to the word of God  while helping others do the same. This conference is designed to equip Christians with the principles for rightly applying the word of God to the various areas of life.

This conference will be divided into three modules, with each module offered as two-day sessions (Friday night and Saturday morning and afternoon). A module is offered each month for three consecutive months and provides the 30 hours of basic training required for ACBC certification. Your conference registration provides you access to all three modules.
