Abide Confernce

Join us Friday, July 6th to Sunday, July 9th of experiential training, worship, and ministry, focusing on what it means to abide in Christ, standing firm in our God-authored identity and adopting a Kingdom mindset within a culture of love and honor. This conference is offered through Expedition 61, an organization promoting discipleship training and spiritual formation in a variety of settings. Benjamin Dominguez is a native of DuPage County and founder of Expedition 61 and its partner nonprofit Arise Today. Benjamin offers similar conferences on the high seas as he captains sailing trips called “ARRR U Prepared.. to Walk on Water”

In the sessions, you will grow in the awareness of the anointing you carry. You will explore Scriptural truth that deactivates lies we have believed about healing, miracles and stepping out of the "boat". You’ll also learn new ways to cultivate and maintain an atmosphere conducive to healing and miracles in your personal lives, churches, or ministries.

The Abide evening sessions will include worship, teaching, and ministry and are open to the public.
