The BUILD Men's Conference invited its first speaker, Mark Chanski, in 2013. He was followed by Greg Gilbert in 2014, Dr. Bruce Ware in 2015, Heath Lambert in 2016, Eric Bancroft in 2017, and Jared C. Wilson in 2018. Each conference has been an encouragement to men all over West Michigan with the fellowship, singing, and the preaching of the Word.
While we were seeing God use the BUILD Men's Conference to encourage and equip men in West Michigan, we also saw a need to do the same for the women.
In 2016 we held our first SALT Women's Conference with Jodi Ware. Jodi did a wonderful job communicating the importance of contentment in the believers life. The SALT Women's Conference is held every other year with Holly Stratton coming in the fall of 2018.
It's our hope and prayer that God would use these conferences to build up Christian men and women through solid Biblical teaching that is rooted in the gospel and applicable for everyday life.
