The Family Summit is coming soon!

This year's Family Summit with the theme of "Christ-Centered Life Purpose" on July 15-17th is fast approaching and we are so excited for what the Lord has in store!

The Summit will include; powerful messages and testimonies, an (optional) special program for children during the sessions, time for vision casting as couples, breakout sessions for the young people, fun family activities, campfires, amazing fellowship, delicious food, and more!

There are so many incredible families registered for this year's summit and we still have some room for you to join us! We would love to share this time of seeking the Lord with your family!

If you have specific questions, feel free to email the conference registrar, Breezy, at and she will be happy to help you!

We'd love to have you join us and are so looking forward to all that the Lord has in store!

Here is an overview of the main sessions that the adults and young adults will be receiving from our guest speaker Dewey Novotny:

1. Taking Aim in an Aimless World.
More than anything else, world-changing impact requires the right target. The rest is easy…sort of. This is your introduction to Life Purpose Planning, the process, and the possibilities.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Proverbs 29:18

2. Discover your purpose.
Life purpose is your personal invitation to join God as He works in you and through you to bring Him glory, meet the needs of people you care about, and grant you joy and fulfillment in the process. Discover, delight, and dedicate.

“Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” Psalm 16:11

3. Define your pursuit
Purpose involves people, ignites passion, and inspires pursuit. Identify your significant audience, determine your delightful and effective way to serve them, and clarify your life-changing message of faith, hope, and love. Write, refine, and run.

“Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Habakkuk 2:2

4. Develop your plan of action
Analyze your situation and take proper action. The most excellent plans flow out of a purposeful process: Purpose first, wise stretching goals next, and then launch with powerful steps of action. Great plans are needed for great works of faith. Ready, aim, fire!

"Trust in the LORD, and do good…Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."
~ Psalm 37:3-6

Breakout sessions include:

"Man-to-Man - After God's Plan" - Fathers and Sons - Jeff and Eric Vest

"Leaving a Legacy of Godly Excellence" - Mothers - Margie Vest

"Becoming a Young Woman of God in Today's Culture" - Daughters - Amy Vest

We hope to see you there! You can find out more information and print off a registration form at!

Loving the Lord Videocast #6 - Don't Waste Your Youth

Dear Friends,

Youth is a precious and amazing time full of great potential and opportunity. The Lord calls us spend it correctly and lay a solid foundation for the rest of our life. 1 Timothy 4:12 tells us, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” If we do this, we will be amazed at what He will do – in us and through us! We are exciting to look at this together in this video! May the Lord bless you as you seek Him and seek to live your youth to the fullest for His glory!

The Summer Pursuit began yesterday – it is not too late to join in! We would love to have you join us in making this summer the best summer of our lives! For more information, you can visit the website ( and view the video and information here on the blog (see below)!
