for Wholeness Conference 2017 Hearts United is scheduled
for Wednesday, July 12, through Sunday, July 16.
Gather with people from throughout the country—even some from other parts of the world—who share our experiences and our desire to follow God despite the challenges we face. Hear from insightful speakers at general sessions and dig down into the specifics at more intimate workshops. Mull over what you've heard as you explore the beautiful Ridgecrest Conference Center in the mountains of North Carolina. Attendees will include those from Alive in Christ, from other ministries, and many who live in areas without access to a support group ministry. Register by June 10 for an early-bird discount.
Links to articles to encourage us to view same-sex attraction through a Christian lens. Some articles express views not entirely in agreement with those of Alive in Christ, but are included to spur your thinking.
