A lot of energy and effort is invested in envisioning and equipping God’s people to pray, to read the Word, to evangelize and do acts of service- certainly all important spiritual disciplines.
There will come a day however when we need to do none of these things. Every need will be met. Every prayer will be answered. There will be no more tears.

Your Keynote Speaker: Jeff Ling
Pastor of Clear River, has served the body of Christ for over 30 years. Jeff has a pastor’s heart and his teaching ministry is dynamic, humorous, practical and solidly rooted in the Scriptures. He has ministered throughout the world focusing on worship, servant leadership, and spiritual growth. One of the comments he has enjoyed hearing the most from people is “You’re real! I can relate to you.” Jeff, and his wife Zibby bring to people a compassionate understanding of the genuine ups and downs of life. Their desire is to see others experience the freedom that comes from living in God’s presence, knowing His grace, and walking in simple obedience to Him. To be part of their ministry is to feel that you’ve been with friends rather than “experts”. Jeff is ordained under the ministry of Messenger Fellowship, based in Nashville, Tennessee.
