WELCOME

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our 2017 State Conference Website.

We’re so excited about our upcoming conference this year, believing that it won’t just be another amazing conference, but because of our theme and speakers, it will truly be even more amazing than usual.

This year’s theme is “Generations”. When God spoke life into humanity it was always with generations in mind, and again when He birthed the Church it was for the generations.

The Gospel and the Church were never for a single generation, but it was always the plan and will of God that the generations would stand side by side and flourish together. This conference will be both a celebration and a lesson in how this might be accomplished.

Our guest speakers are a father and son who are a living example of all that we’re looking to promote. Pastor Glen and Micah Berteau are a father and son combination that are doing great things at The House Modesto, and I have no doubt they’ll be a great blessing to us at conference. And if you don’t have a natural son to work with, the principles can be transferred between Spiritual Fathers and Mothers and Spiritual Sons and Daughters.

You really don’t want to miss out on conference! Please do all you can to join us, and if there is anything we can do to assist you or your teams, please contact our office and let our team know.

Many blessings, hope to see you there,

Shane Baxter
President, ACC Victoria
