"Faithful or Fickle Judah?—Hosea 12:1-3 in Philological Perspective"
Demonstrating any type of coherence in Hosea 12:1b in its biblical and theological contexts lies in uncovering the significance of the ambiguous word rad רד. In this paper, I suggest a philological solution to this quandary.

"How to Find Genuine Joy" John 15:8-11
Service time: 9am
Sometimes we, as well-meaning, God-loving people can get caught up focusing on the wrong things to bring us joy—even if those things are good. Sometimes our journey for genuine joy becomes misguided. Through Jesus’ words to his disciples in John 15:8-11, all followers of Christ are able take to heart that which brings true joy to one's life.
Abide – What Fruit Will You Bear?
- A series on Connect. Impact. Multiply
This year's 56th conference theme is a continuation of last year's "Connect, Impact, Multiply". The theme will be focusing on CONNECT – connecting with God, the family of God and others. Fruit is an indicator that we are in the vine. In John 15, it implies that we are the branches and that God is the gardener. If we are connected to the vine we should be bearing fruit? How does that look like and what does that mean? Our goal this year is revival: bearing fruit and spreading God's love to others. Our theme verse is John 15:5.
