August 6-9, 2018
Ann Arbor, MI

The ministry of the Holy Spirit—what would we do without it? Yet, some neglect this vital ministry while others minimize or even disparage it. We, however, must not think the importance of the Spirit’s work to be any less than what Scripture declares.  There we find that Jesus, exalted and seated at the right hand of the Father, sent the Holy Spirit as His gift from the throne to lead and empower His disciples and His church.

How is your relationship with the Holy Spirit? Is it vibrant? Do you honor the Spirit as God, fellowship with Him as a person, follow His leadership and trust His power? At this year’s Christ Life Conference, we will seek Bible truth regarding the powerful and necessary ministry of the Holy Spirit—the Spirit of Jesus.
