Renewal Conference

June 25, 2017 – June 30, 2017

Life in the Trinity:
There’s More to You than You Think

Before time dawned and space came to be, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dreamed of including us in all that they share together. This is the one divine purpose for humanity. In breathtaking grace, Jesus has crossed all worlds and united heaven and earth, the divine and the human, in himself through his incarnate life, death, resurrection and ascension. The Holy Spirit has been poured out on all flesh to bring us to discover and experience the staggering reality of our inclusion in Jesus and his relationship with His Father. “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, you in Me and I in you.” (John 14:20)

In this conference we will explore the Trinitarian Life, how Jesus included us and what this reality means for us now on earth—in work, play and relationships.

About the Conference

Kanuga’s annual Renewal Conference brings families and friends together for a week of teaching, worship and healing. Designed as a spiritual recharge, the week features dynamic morning and evening teaching, afternoon relaxation and workshops and powerful worship.
