Freshly Envisioned      Newly Equipped

Our annual One Church Ministries Conference USA is an important time for Living Light Christian Churches. It’s not just a wonderful time to celebrate the amazing covenant life we have in Christ, but it is also when we are instructed and commissioned 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 prophetic and preached word.


We are excited to hold our 2019 conference at the Century Center in South Bend, Indiana.
