Conference: God and the Christian Mind

We want to make you aware of a tremendous opportunity available to all of us here in Rural Northern and Central Minnesota:

On Saturday afternoon and evening, April 21, Pastor Eric Anderson and Lifespring Church in Crosby are hosting a conference on God and The Christian Mind: The Biblical way to think, discern and walk in this present world. Drs. Paul Helseth and Ardel Canaday from Northwestern University in Roseville, MN will be presenting. For more information, including schedule and registration (it’s free!), see the conference flyer.

This conference is open and applicable to all, but may be of particular interest and benefit to those of high school and college ages. This would be a great and dare we say especially relevant conference to invite youth and young adult groups.
