Save the Date for Regional Conference in Minnesota

Truth78 is excited to announce a 1-day Regional Conference for Saturday April 13, 2019 at Eden Baptist Church in Burnsville, MN.

Please mark this date on your calendar and plan to spend the day with Truth78  being encouraged, challenged, trained, and equipped to influence the faith of the next generation.

What to Expect

David and Sally Michael (founders of Truth78, formerly Children Desiring God) will present a biblical vision for encouraging the faith of the next generation, highlighting the strategic relationship between the church and home in this privilege and responsibility.

There will also be breakout seminars on various topics for parents, ministry leaders, and children & youth ministry volunteers.

We plan to have our online registration available early in January. There will be a small registration fee to cover lunch and registration materials.

We look forward to seeing you then. Please contact us if you have any questions.


February 5, 2019 Update:

We have been greatly encouraged by the positive response to Truth78’s “Save the Date” announcement regarding a Regional Conference scheduled for April 13 in Minnesota. We eagerly anticipated the mutual building up and encouragement of ministry leaders, volunteers, and parents as we seek to lay a sure foundation for the faith of the next generations.

However, the Truth78 leadership team has come to the very difficult but necessary decision to indefinitely postpone this event.It is difficult because we want to be a ministry that keeps its commitments and we know many have already made plans to attend this event. We do not take postponement of a conference lightly. But several circumstances have arisen causing us to change our present course. The most pressing of these circumstances is communicated below.

Our founders and main conference speakers, David and Sally Michael, are experiencing a very challenging time in their family. Their daughter Kristi, after many months of health issues, went to the Mayo Clinic in Arizona where she was diagnosed with a very serious medical condition. As of yet, there is no clear treatment plan in place to stabilize her condition and, once instituted, treatment may require a long and difficult road ahead. Needless to say, David and Sally need the time and flexibility to help their daughter in the months ahead as they travel back and forth between three different states in order to assist her. Your prayers for the Michael family would be greatly appreciated.

We are able to announce, however, a regional conference in Louisville, Kentucky this fall. Immanuel Baptist Church is hosting this conference in November. This will be available for livestream and will be recorded (and eventually posted on our website). We look forward to following up with more details about speakers and topics.
