This week, some 776 attendees, including pastors and their spouses, gathered in Hershey, Pa., for the “I Am With You” Columbia Union Evangelism Workshop. 

“This is the third ministerium we’ve had in the Columbia Union since 2000; may this be the last. May this be the one you say, ‘I was there, and I went looking for the Holy Spirit to empower me, and the Spirit fell upon me,” said Dave Weigley, Columbia Union Conference president, during the first meeting of the event.  

Union leadership planned the event to provide tools by way of 40 workshops and 10 plenary sessions to empower, equip, and engage pastors (and their local churches) in spreading the gospel, discipling and encouraging their members in evangelism and deepening their relationships with Christ.  

Watch videos of the inspiring plenary sessions from speakers Jiří Moskala, Debleaire Snell, Richie Halversen, Elizabeth Talbot,  Weigley and others on YouTube or Facebook

The Visitor staff will continue to share photos, videos and more inspiring news from the event throughout the next several weeks. The recordings of the breakout sessions will be available in the spring.
