Faith Lift

NOTE: The audio from this event is available by clicking on this link to the Hosanna! Lutheran Church website. Lots worth listening to there. I highly recommend the presentation by Gemechis Buba.


Lighthouse Conference
9600 163rd Street W
Lakeville, MN 55044

Sunday, June 6, 6:00 p.m. through Tuesday, June 8, 12:00 noon

We have our son's graduation from high school on Sunday, June 6, but on Monday June 7 - 8 I plan to attend this awesome Faith Lifting Event.  Will you come with me?  The worship, the speakers and the workshops will help us move from activities to impact, from developing programs to developing people, from internal focus to external force, from ministry to mission. If you would appreciate a ride or a scholarship, email me or call Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cokato at 320-286-5964.

  1. Thanks to Wayne Murphy and my daughter Naomi for going with me to this excellent event. Look at my blog post from today, June 8 for a few notes from one of the speakers. I've heard that some of the audio and/or video will be put up on the Hosanna website soon.
