20th Annual Conference
‘…rejoice in this, that your names are recorded in Heaven” Luke 10:20
This year marks the 20th year for the annual Fellowship of Christian Farmers Conference. It will be held at the Embassy Suites Cincinnati – River Center, in Covington, Kentucky, August 2 through August 4, 2013.
This year will feature inspirational speaker Tim Haas, Manager of U.S. Disaster Relief, Samaritan’s Purse and graduate of North Carolina State University. U.S. Disaster Relief responds to hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, wildfires, and ice storms from coast to coast. Tim oversees deployment of five Disaster Relief Units, coordinates a national network of volunteers, and supervises each program manager assigned to disaster sites.
U.S. Disaster Relief has responded to nature’s fiercest storms by repairing and rebuilding more than 1,000 homes and assisting nearly 30,000 families since 2005. Tim has coordinated relief efforts for 28 different disasters across the country and has seen countless people come to Christ as a result. In 2011, has was on the ground less than 24 hours after a tornado with winds over 200 miles per hour ripped through Joplin, Missouri.
Tim and his wife, Christie, have been married for 22 years. Their oldest son, Jordan, is a senior at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Their youngest son, Westin, is a sophomore at Appalachian State University.
Music will be provided by Heartsong, from Cedarville College, Cedarville, Ohio.
Nearby is the Creation Museum, just 7 miles west of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, about a 30 minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. It’s billed as 70,000 square feet of family fun. To enhance the spiritual growth experience of attending the 20th Annual FCFI International Conference, visiting the Creation Museum is part of the pre-conference activities. Since attending the Creation Museum takes the better part of a day, an additional night of hotel will probably be required of most attendees. To encourage young families to experience the Creation Museum and attend the 20th Annual FCFI Conference, a grant of $200 per family is being offered to the first 20 families that apply. Applicants must submit a simple essay verifying their authenticity as a farm family, the ages of their children, and how they hope to enhance their family’s spiritual growth through attending the FCFI Annual Conference.
The Embassy Suites Cincinnati – RiverCenter in Covington, Kentucky is located on the south banks of the Ohio River overlooking the Downtown Cincinnati Skyline.
