Hope marks our lives. Where there is no hope in the future, there is no power in the present. There are no hopeless situations; there are only people who have grown hopeless about them.
I believe that our Fellowship is meant to be an extraordinary example of HOPE during these challenging times. While the world is in turmoil, we see a bright future ahead because God is in control! Where others find despair – economic uncertainly, disease, and civil unrest – we see victorious believers and an overcoming church bringing HOPE to the world around us!
Our conference theme this year was centered on the concept of LEADership. LEADing our churches, LEADing our families, and LEADing in our communities. Despite the cancellation of our time together in Chicago, this topic has never been more relevant. During this time of international crisis, the church is meant to shine. Let’s LEAD like never before – providing HOPE to our neighbors, HOPE to our congregations, and HOPE to our cities.
