Praise God from whom all blessings flow. We have experienced a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit as God is breathing His wonderful life into the church. This is a glorious hour to be serving the King. As the Body of Christ has many individual members, we desire to stay connected with you in the Spirit and to see your ministry flourish.

This is our 49th Pastors Conference and it will be a special time of refreshing, encouragement, and great fellowship for God's ministers. Over the years, we have seen the Lord flood His presence in the services and bring renewal in our hearts so that we can continue to go forth in His Spirit to bless others in our congregations and areas of ministry.

The  Fall Conference will be held on September 21-22, 2020. Our first meeting will start at 7:00PM, on Monday night. You will be revived and inspired! Please stop by the church by 6:00PM so you can enjoy fellowship and refreshments with other pastors and spouses as they arrive. Click here for a complete schedule of events. We hope you can come early Sunday night for additional ministry, fellowship and relaxation. You will be refreshed, inspired, challenged, and receive fresh revelation on your walk in Christ. Please check out the motel and other conference information below.

This is specifically a "time of refreshing" for God's ministers and their spouse. The Holy Spirit will work among us to build relationships, to hear the Word of the Lord and to receive personal ministry. Over the last several years, these conferences have grown extensively and have been a great source of encouragement to many of us in the Lord's service. Please pray about attending.

This charismatic conference is open to all pastors and spouses, missionaries, ministry staff. We certainly hope that you will feel welcome and be able to attend. We are expecting a great time of blessing. I personally look forward to hearing from you soon. I appreciate your ministry to the Body of Christ.

Sincerely yours in Christ,


Pastor Dave Kaufman - Conference Host

Dear Ministry Friends,

We are so thankful for your friendship and service to the Lord in the Body of Christ. God is pouring out His Holy Spirit today. We have experienced another awesome time of refreshing in the presence of the Lord. God is always faithful. At this conference we had 50 ministers register from 3 states. 25 different ministries were represented. The Lord has put together a spiritual network of leaders from many denominations and fellowships. They have allowed themselves to be mutually enriched with prayer, encouragement and cooperation. A wave of God's power is building, that is touching our cities and states, for His glory. The fields are white already for harvest. Let's continue to think bigger and have a greater vision for souls. 

Our next Midwest Pastors Conference is scheduled for March 29-30, 2021. Please mark your calendars now. It will be another awesome time in the presence of the Lord. If you are aware of another "pastor" who would be interested in this conference, please let them know.

My wife, Jeanne, and I pray for God's blessings on your marriage, family, and ministry. We have been in the full time ministry for the last 40 years and we sense the challenges and pressures that can face those in ministry. If you have a prayer concern or a need for  fellowship, please feel free to call us, write us, or send an e-mail. We are here to be an anchor of encouragement to you and we are standing with you for God's blessing, anointing, and prosperity upon your ministry. We really do love and appreciate you.

Your friend in Christ, 

Pastor Dave Kaufman - Conference Host
