OCM Conference USA

July 13-16, 2023

A time to be freshly envisioned and equipped

Our OCM Conference is an important weekend for Living Light Christian Churches and One Voice Church. It is a wonderful time to celebrate the amazing covenant life we have in Christ and to receive instruction and commissioning for the next leg of our journey together as a family of churches.

As always, we come first to worship our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our hearts, to proclaim His goodness, and experience His wonderful presence. Year after year, we have been privileged to have God speak to us, direct us, and inspire us in both the preached and prophetic word.

Conference Location

The OCM Conference is located at the Century Center in South Bend, Indiana, right on the St. Joseph River. It’s known for the adjacent University of Notre Dame, with its gold-domed main building. In the city center, the Studebaker National Museum displays classic cars made by the now-defunct local company. The nearby History Museum has exhibits spotlighting aspects of regional life. The museum also owns 3 historic homes, including the 19th-century Oliver Mansion. Please remember that South Bend, Indiana is in the Eastern Time Zone.

Who should attend

This conference is particularly geared towards the churches connected with One Church Ministries, and although much of the direction and teaching of the conference will be focused on the call of God within these churches, friends from other expressions of the Church are welcome. We especially encourage everyone who considers themselves members of Living Light and One Voice to prioritize this event!
