Build, Dwell, Plant - Thriving Families in Times of Tumult
  • Overview

    Come to Paoli to celebrate God’s wonderful design for family life. Come to sharpen your focus to, “Build Dwell Plant, In Praise of God’s Design for Church and Family.” God instructed His people how to thrive during the Babylonian Captivity, Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit. (Jer. 29:5). We will be gathering August 5-7. At this gathering we will be offering an array of experiences. We will be gathering pastors together for a luncheon, a couples banquet, a women’s meeting as well as plenary sessions. One of the blessings of this conference is that we will be eating meals together at Dogwood throughout the conference. Childcare will be provided for the Thursday evening session on marriage.
