Journey with us to ¡SAMARIA!

Our whole life is a journey of discipleship (DiscipleLife); our call is to go with Jesus, into the world, to touch the lives of those on the margins of society, as well as those who do not yet know Christ, with the love and mercy that Jesus showed.
This year’s keynote speakers include:
The Rev. Dr. Barbara Rossing
Former Congressman Charles W. Stenholm
The Rev. Susan Engh
ELCA Churchwide Representative
We will have a special concert Friday night with Christian duo Jason and deMarco
