About The Conference
“Fan the Flame” comes out of 2 Timothy 1:6 where the Apostle Paul encourages Timothy to renew the “gift of God in him”. In times of doubt, difficulties or despair, Christians can often experience a cooling off of their faith and fellowship with our Heavenly Father. This series of services are being offered as an opportunity for renewal and restoration….a fanning of the flame of that gift of God. Through prayer, praise and the presences of the Holy Spirit, it is our desire to invite you to this time of fellowship.
