About the Event

Restore 2024: MNA Mercy Conference will recast a vision for Kingdom-centered mercy ministry and equip deacons, ministry leaders, and lay people to enter into the restorative work of mercy. Grounded in the holistic Kingdom vision laid out in Luke 4, this conference will explore what it means to enter into the work of mercy, restoring our vision and love as we seek to restore capacity.

 

This conference will feature keynotes by Rev. Dr. Irwyn Ince, Rev. Victor Martinez, and Dr. Brian Fikkert, and workshops led by a wide variety of practitioners in our region.

 

PURPOSE

To equip the body to extend mercy to those facing hardship using an approach that is biblically-based, historically-mindful and dignity-affirming.
