Greater Purpose Conference

April 3-5, 2024 – Branson, MO

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Isaiah 60:1-3

Get ready to strengthen your faith, elevate your joy, and gain a deeper revelation of why you were born for “such a time as this”!  It’s like a personal invitation for an intimate encounter with the Master Himself.
