…to GROW! 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 2016 theme is REDEEMING WORK. Participants will celebrate the redeeming work of Christ and on the flipside find guidance toward vocational fulfillment. Most people spend 40 to 50 percent of their time at work. And yet they rarely receive validation or instruction on how vocation delights God and builds redemptive relationships for Christ-followers.
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 GROW at Okoboji, July 30-August 7, 2016!
