NEGAUNEE, Mich.—Calvary Baptist Church hosted a conference called Lifting Leaders Up for Upper Peninsula church leaders Jan. 24 and 25.

Two dozen church leaders from the Northwoods gathered for the time of encouragement and fellowship. Guest speaker Danny Brooks, a pastor focusing on church revitalization in Utah, spoke from 1 and  2 Timothy on “Ministry: In Light of the Mercy We’ve Received.” He encouraged those attending to spend time away from their normal ministry routines and spend time together in the Word, identifying with one another’s joys, challenges, and ministries.

Pastor Randy Reed thanks members of Calvary Baptist Church for hosting guests overnight.
