16:5 Conference—2013
David Whiting, pastor of North Ridge Church, Rochester, N.Y., invites you to attend North Ridge’s upcoming 16:5 Conference on March 18 and 19. “16:5 is a conference for pastors, church leaders, staff, and key volunteers who long to obey the Great Commission both effectively and Biblically. Being both Biblically faithful and culturally relevant is a difficult tightrope to walk. At 16:5 we will learn to walk this tightrope together through main sessions, breakouts, fellowship, and worship. We would love to have you join us and others who long to be both faithful and relevant in sharing the gospel with the people in our culture.” This year, the 16:5 Conference has partnered with Baptist Bible Seminary, Clarks Summit, Pa., in order to allow conference attendees to earn one free seminary credit hour.
