  2015 Midwest SpiritQuest combined with RPI Gen'l Conference

The 15th Annual General Conference of the Reconciling Pentestostals International in conjunction with the 18th Annual Midwest SpiritQuest was held Thursday, Sept. 10 thru Sunday, Sept. 13 at New Life ConnectPoint, LaPorte, IN, and hosted by Bishop Randy Duncan & Pastor Dan Wright. God moved in a very powerful way.  Make your plans to atend this great meeting of progressive affirming 21st Century Pentecostals during our next conference to be anounced. Details of speakers, break out sessions and related events were as follows: 


Theme: "The Way, The Truth & The Life"
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes

to the Father except through me."  John 14:6

If you are hungering and thirsting for righteousness, this is the conference for you. Come ready to receive from the Lord and to offer up your sacrifice of praise to Jesus Christ! 

Through the years we have come together for a time of refreshing and fellowship. There is nothing like gathering with people of similar convictions and vision. Our services are geared toward fervent worship and praise for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. With such a decline in "contending for the faith once delivered to the saints" being evident across the world among those who claim Christianity as their belief, it is imperative that we encourage one another, as did the early church, to STAND for the message of salvation and holy living as well as evangelism at home and abroad. LOVE must permeate our desire and determination to unify in this endeavor. 

We are delighted to have many making plans to attend this year. Since we are scheduling our conference on a non-holiday weekend, hotel rates are much better as well as availability. So, please make plans to return to NW Indiana for our joint conference. 

Nate Richardson, Phoenix, AZ will be returning after a few years of absence as our Chief Musician and Minister of Music. He will be accompanied by other wonderful musicians and singers, such as Shaun Smith & Paul Parnell,  to lead us into the presence of God along with great praise and worship during each service.

Pastor Doug Clanton~Phoenix, AZ
