A vibrant church community is dependent on us being both needy and needed. So we want to grow in how we ask for help and how we give help. This conference is designed to guide us in those skills, with a focus on how these work in everyday friendships. Even in our professional culture, God is pleased to use needy people and ordinary conversations to do most of the heavy lifting in his kingdom. It’s the perfect system. If God used only experts and people of renown, some could boast in their own wisdom, but God’s way of doing things is not the same as our own. This conference is for ordinary people who need help and want to grow in giving help, and, as we grow, we hope to contribute to the ongoing transformation in our local churches.
