Four regional conferences are scheduled for 2011 at The Voice of the Martyrs’ new headquarters building, The Wurmbrand Center, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
“These regional conferences will inform, inspire, and call believers into deeper involvement in their support of persecuted believers around the world,” said Dave Brackemyre, Director of VOM Voice Ministries. “If you attend you will hear from believers who have suffered persecution and from those working in restricted nations. You will grasp what persecution means to us today.”
The one-day conferences will be held March 19, June 4, August 6 and October 8. The adult conferences will run concurrently with children’s conferences. “Children between the ages of 5 and 12 will get an opportunity to learn about courageous believers around the world,” Brackemyre added. “The children’s conference will highlight the Kids of Courage mission to invite and inspire the children into fellowship with the persecuted church.”
REGISTRATION FOR EACH CONFERENCE IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 450 PEOPLE, and to the FIRST 100 CHILDREN for the Kids of Courage conference.
Conference visitors will also have opportunities to tour the recently-dedicated Wurmbrand Center, which includes an evolving museum examining the history of Christian persecution and VOM’s work in restricted nations. Tours will also be available of VOM’s Operations Center, where aid materials are packed and shipped to Christians around the world. The completion of The Wurmbrand Center allowed all VOM staff to work from one location after the ministry outgrew the previous headquarters building and had staff working from three different locations in Bartlesville. The VOM Ministry Center includes volunteer housing, the Operations Center and Wurmbrand Center, and is 81% debt free.
VOM has been hosting conferences for 13 years, and 2011 will be the fifth consecutive year that the ministry will hold regional conferences in many cities around the country.
Share the news about the upcoming regional conferences with your church, prayer group, family and friends and pray that those who attend will be impacted by the testimonies of persecuted believers. To register and get additional information for the conferences go to www.vommeetings.com.
