The "GATHERING" - MARCH 17-19. -Olathe, KANSAS CITY. - Entry is NO CHARGE. ADDITIONAL Speaker - BRYAN HUPPERTS. Dear friends, This year's Gathering is just over a month away, and there are still seats available. The THEME will be- "Back to New Testament Christianity." About BRYAN HUPPERTS: Two years ago, I heard Bryan preach a very heartfelt message on, "Coming up from the Wilderness, Leaning on my Beloved." -He is a Christian author and columnist, yet he has spent many years on the 'backside of the desert' in a real wilderness journey. God has molded and refined him, and he has a tremendous testimony about "Coming up from the Wilderness" and the dealings of God that he has been through. Bryan is the author of the book, 'A Raven's Gift' and publishes his 'Sheeptrax' column weekly. We certainly look forward to hearing from him. Public SHARING: I don't want to give the impression that this is a "speakers-only" event. As always, we will be giving space for sharing times and others to speak from the platform. The body needs to minister to the body. ABOUT the THEME - "Back to New Testament Christianity": -We have a collection of speakers at this Gathering that I believe can really shed light on this topic. Darren Smith has started a network of 'outreach'-oriented house churches - with a strong emphasis on "relational" Christianity. -So he will bring a great deal of insight on that topic. David Kirkwood, of course, preaches around the world on the "actual teachings of Jesus." And Andrew Strom will be speaking for 2 sessions on 'How to experience Personal Revival' - and then "Revived Body Life."
