New Convergence Programming

 Six-part Series Begins Feb 22 & 23, 2018



Developing the disciplines of a sincere faith

featuring the teaching ministry of James MacDonald


Authentic faith does not just happen. Authentic faith is the result of focus, desire, and dedication. That’s what AUTHENTIC: Developing the Disciplines of a Sincere Faith is all about. Come learn about the spiritual disciplines that Jesus assumed all his disciples would practice; disciplines that lead to the kind of powerful living that Jesus himself lived.

Each session of Convergence includes Prayer, Small Group Discussion, and Q&A Feedback. Childcare provided for those who request it during pre-course registration.

Featuring the Straight-on Bible Teaching Ministry of Dr. James MacDonald, Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel and Host of Walk In the Word Radio

Evening sessions include spiritual formation teaching and activities for toddlers, children, and youth.

Dinner will be available for everyone from 6:00 - 6:25 pm. A contribution of $3 per person is suggested to offset cost of the meal.
