The 4:12 Conference exists to Equip God's People to Serve God's church. 


BASED ON EPHESIANS 4:12, WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY CHRISTIAN HAS ROLE TO PLAY IN SERVING JESUS' CHURCH. OUR GOAL IS TO HELP BELIEVERS SEE GOD'S GRAND VISION FOR THE CHURCH, AND FIND THEIR PLACE IN IT. WE DO THIS BY LOOKING TO GOD'S WORD FOR ENCOURAGEMENT AND LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER PRACTICAL WAYS TO SERVE THE CHURCH.
