We are disappointed that we will not be able to gather together in-person in Grand Rapids, MI at the end of July for our annual Conference Week due to its cancellation in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, President Kevin Butler, the General Council, and the Conference Directors are pleased to be able to bring a flavor of our Conference Week and President Butler’s theme, Fix Your Eyes on Jesus, to a wider audience virtually during the same week (July 26-August 1, 2020).
