Fall Conference Theme and Speakers – Newsletter – May 2018

We are looking forward to our annual fall conference on October 12, 2018. This conference is open to everyone, but you do need to register.

Our theme this year is “Growing Leaders.” Our speakers will be Mike Cavanaugh and Jared Ruddy. The conference will be hosted by Petra Church in New Holland, PA.

Mike Cavanaugh currently serves as President of Elim Bible Institute and College in Lima, NY. He previously served for 20 years as the founding and Senior Pastor of Elim Gospel Church, and as Vice-President of Elim Fellowship.

Mike is the founder of BASIC, a local church-based ministry to college students, and Mobilized to Serve, a ministry to single adults. He has earned degrees from Roberts Wesleyan College (BS) and Bakke Graduate University (Master of Theological Studies).

A motivating speaker known for his clarity, humor, and use of illustration, Mike has traveled extensively in the U.S. and overseas. Due to his broad leadership experience and heart to equip church leaders, Mike finds himself invited often to speak at pastors’ and leadership events. He and his wife, Terri, reside in Lima, NY.

Jared Ruddy is known for his passion, humor, and unique communication style. He travels nationally and internationally, but most recently he, his wife Erin, and their son Landon transitioned to Rochester, NY, to be the Lead Pastor at Elim Gospel Church, a dynamic congregation of nearly 1,000 in Lima, NY.

Jared is author of A New Normal: Unleashing the Power of Christ in You. At the core of Jared’s ministry is his desire to see people discover the power of the Holy Spirit at work within them so they can be a part of transforming their world with God’s power and love.

We are looking forward to a great conference! I hope you can join us.
