Series Description

At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?

Throughout each verse-by-verse session, pastor Eric Mason expands our vision to see that Jonah's story is our own. Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, it offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but in redeeming those whom He has called to participate in His reconciling work.

So climb aboard & settle in as Eric reveals how God uses extraordinary circumstances to break our hearts of selfishness, convince us of His tender care & unite our lives to His glory.

How many people per room?

We will have 2 women staying in each room to ensure that everyone is comfortable, has plenty of room & can take long showers. :-)

Why the option for 1 night or 2 nights?

Though the conference wraps up on Saturday, some of our ladies enjoy taking advantage of the opportunity to spend some extra time together hanging out in the city, shopping, grabbing dinner, etc. on Saturday night before heading home on Sunday. If that's you, please select the 2-night option & get ready for a great time.
