One Focus Network Annual Conference
The theme for this year’s annual One Focus conference is a focus on the eternal Word of God as the anchor and plumbline of Christ’s Church in a rapidly changing and shifting culture. Pilate’s mocking question of “What is truth?” reverberates through nearly every corner of our society. Yet one thing remains sure: heaven and earth may pass away but God’s Word is supremely able to equip, empower, and enlighten every believer to walk out the mission of God in the earth.

It is time to sharpen our spirits for the days ahead

This conference is designed for every church leader and church member. In two incredible days, we will explore the power of the Word of God to nourish our spirits, shape our minds, and inspire our hearts. It is our prayer that all attendees will go home with a fresh love and desire for Scripture, sharpened to penetrate the darkness of our world. Like those on Emmaus Road, may our hearts burn as Scripture is opened up before us over these two days of prayer, worship, and community. The conference includes breakouts, panels, and general sessions. There is something for everyone.
