You're invited to watch the Lamb & Lion Ministries Annual Bible Conference via Live-Stream! The theme for 2019 is "Contending for the Faith" (Jude 1:3). Christianity is under attack in this nation as never before, and we therefore decided to focus our conference on defending the fundamentals of our faith.
The Live-Stream will begin at 6:30 PM CST on July 12. Please click here for further event details and to connect to the Youtube channel that will stream the conference.
Here are further details:
Our annual conference will begin on Friday evening with a musical concert that is followed by the keynote speaker. The featured musician this year will be Marty Goetz. Marty is no stranger to our supporters. He has been our featured musician in two previous conferences, and we spotlight his music each year in a special TV program that we always air as our last program of the year.
Marty Goetz is a Messianic Jew who has been called a "modern day psalmist." His songs are scriptures beautifully set to music, leaving listeners spiritually moved, inspired and educated. With melodic and fresh acoustical and classic arrangements, Marty has the ability to lead you into a place of true intimacy with God.
And unlike his appearances at two of our previous conferences, this year Marty has agreed to stay over all day Saturday to sing a song before each speaker!
