The theme of the conference is Fresh Biblical Waters. The central meaning of the conference is that we will be pouring fresh biblical waters on the preacher's church, his vision and his ministry. After COVID many ministries suffered from a spiritual fog/malaise, a general feeling of discomfort or uneasiness. The uneasiness comes from the fact that these ministers have been called by God through the Lord Jesus Christ as a beacon of hope, but they have never experienced a catastrophe like this before and they don't know what direction to turn into or how to lead the church. The conference will give them some direction. According to our master teacher, Reverend Mark McCleary, he will provide new creative ideals and approaches on how to revitalize their ministries after God decided to take 1.7 million people with a mysterious virus called COVID.

The question comes now: How do you come back after that? And what do you say to God's People? At the conference, we are going to pour fresh creative biblical waters on their ministries. We will give them a new sense of hope and provide new and exciting ideals on how to interpret the scripture in light of this disaster. You are always giving God the praise and lifting up Jesus Christ as the hope of all hope. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning of all ends. He is the Rose of Sharon and Lily of the Valley, and he will come back to receive his church without a wrinkle.

Every minister will be given at least 10 biblical ideals and examples on how to revitalize their churches.

The conference will give many clues to those that have no clue at all. We will empower and revitalize God's Men and Women to go back into this world thus says the Lord with power. The church lacks confidence and power in its own gospel of Jesus Christ (The Good News). But God's Man, Reverend Mark McCleary will provide for those pastors more than a clue. He will provide an understanding to get them out of this spiritual fog/malaise into God's marvelous light.

We will experience 6 hours of Pentacostal power!

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
