GROWTH! That’s the purpose of this annual Christian gathering in Northwest Iowa’s beautiful lakes region. The Okoboji Lakes offer a family fun oasis in the middle of America’s agricultural heartland. Okoboji is a place to grow! You’ll grow in God’s grace, knowledge of Bible truth, and global mission awareness all while enjoying friendships new and old.
The 2017 theme was Embrace HIS World. Participants learned how to live out the transforming power of Christ in an increasingly complex context for Christian life and mission. Scholars, encouragers, and ministers guided thoughtful consideration around ways to think about, accept, and embrace God’s world.
Every year since 1935 this late-summer gathering has served countless participants. It all started as a tent meeting and that tent meeting feel just won’t go away. Nobody wants it to. There is deep refreshing in ancient truth from contemporary Christian leaders joined by world-class Christian musicians and worship leaders. The takeaways are life changing.
There is no registration fee. The Conference and related ministries continue by faith, depending on God’s provision through those who benefit. Donations are received to meet event expenses, maintain the campus, and support local, year-round ministries. To attend you need only care for your own transportation, housing, and meals (get additional info here).
Make plans now to join us for the 2018 Conference, August 4th through the 12th.
