Biblical Spiritual Disciplines for Real People Pursuing a Deeper Relationship with God
Discipleship and Biblical Counseling Conference
March 3 - 5, 2023
Our God is the Almighty God, yet He desires personal relationship with us, a relationship that "satisfies the longing soul" and in which by His existence we find "fullness of joy." It's also in the context of relationship with Him that He transforms each of us through a greater understanding of Himself and His Son.
But how do we Biblically pursue this relationship in practical ways? How can we grow in intimacy and obedience to help us live more effectively for His glory? Given hardship and just the daily grind, are there ways to truly cultivate joy and maintain the mind of Christ?
The answer to all these questions is yes! Join us for this year's conferece as Donald S. Whitney, author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible, introduces and helps us implement the vital spiritual disciplines of Bible intake, meditation, and prayer.
Whether you are a new believer or seasoned saint, together we will discover ways of practicing these disciplines that produce a deeper and more personal relationship with God and increases our love for Him - the true catalyst for spiritual growth, conformity to the character of His Son, and living as a reflection of His love to those around us.
