The Spring Ministry Conference is “designed for all church attenders, not simply pastors or ministry leaders,” Vogel says. “Our goal is to promote learning, mutual edification, and spiritual growth that will glorify God, as well as provide tools that will encourage local churches.”

Doug Forman, pastor of Breesport Baptist Church, says the conference “was a blessing to all, and we are praying for multiplied fruit as each attender implements what they learned in our local churches.”
