Legacy Conference 2018

It's time to share a vision for Biblical grandparenting.  

Grandparents have an amazing potential to spiritually influence their grandchildren. Yet, few churches offer ministries focused on grandparenting. It's no wonder grandparents can get caught up in the retirement culture and miss out on investing in the faith-life of their grandchildren.  

Legacy Coalition is launching a national movement to impact the youngest generations through their families. This new ministry intends to share their vision by encouraging and equipping Christian grandparents, and their churches, with the goal of building a legacy of faith.  

We invite you to join us as the Legacy Conference comes to the Quad Cities, with Larry Fowler and Josh Mulvihill, on Saturday, February 24th, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The conference will be held at Edgewood Baptist Church in Rock Island, IL. Price is $35 per person. A Chick-Fil-A box lunch will be provided for the first 250 registrants who request it; cost for the box lunch is $5. 

If you have any questions, e-mail Jason Crosby or call Moody Radio at (309) 234-5111 during normal business hours.
