January 10-11 at Christ’s Church in Effingham, IL for a two-day gathering of ministers—vocational and volunteer—to encourage one another and learn how to better communicate the Gospel. The gathering’s sessions will be spread out over two days and will include interactive teaching from Michael DeFazio and Shane J. Wood, corporate worship, and a live taping of the ReThink Podcast. Lunch and Dinner are provided on Tuesday, and breakfast on Wednesday. Make sure to stick around for all the sessions for several exciting giveaways!


Michael is a New Testament professor at Ozark Christian College. Michael loves books, sports, coffee, Legos, the Los Angeles Lakers, the St. Louis Cardinals, watching his kids Claire and Carson jump on the trampoline, hanging out with his wife Beth, and helping people see Jesus clearly so they can follow him faithfully. Michael will share with us from the book of Leviticus.
