Pre-Conference | Human Suffering & Heaven’s Hope

Fierce suffering in this world demands that our minds be occupied with the glories of the world to come. Deep and abiding joy is the serious business of heaven. As Christians we must re-calibrate our gaze upon our eternal hope, not merely as a future reality, but as a hope that conquers fears and threats of present human suffering. Join us as we equip the saints to minister to those who are suffering, and utilize the glorious hope of heaven so that counselees do not lose heart in their afflictions.
