Annual Disciple Making Church Conference calls participants to ‘abide in Christ’

As part of its ongoing mission to foster a culture of discipling–central to Christian life and practice–the Presbyterian Mission Agency’s office of Evangelism has announced plans for its annual Disciple Making Church Conference. The 2017 conference–based on John 15:4 and titled “Abide in Me … A Spiritual Purging”–is designed to introduce participants to a variety of spiritual practices and help them live fuller mental and spiritual lives in order to bear more fruit for Jesus Christ and Christ’s church. The conference will be held January 16-19, 2017, at the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort, St. Pete Beach, Florida.
