OnWord Conference with Mark Buchanan

Your Church is Too Safe, with Mark Buchanan

Popular author and speaker Mark Buchanan was the featured speaker at the fourth annual onWORD Conference. Speaking on the theme of his most recent book, Mark challenged us to be willing to risk more. In three main sessions over two days, he spoke about Jesus as the Holy Dangerous One. Other speakers expanded further on this theme with a series of practical, Bible-based breakout sessions.


Our Theme:onWORD-conference-logo
The purpose of onWORD is to enjoy Scripture -- to encounter, read, hear, study and enjoy it in various ways (including teaching, music and art). This year, we are delighted to partner with Greenfield Community Church to explore the Bible as story.

The theme of the 2014 onWORD Conference is:
For the Bible Tells Me So: Faithfully Reading the Stories of Scripture

The truth is that God loves stories, and loves to communicate through story. The Bible's stories can be understood and applied in many different ways, and all of our speakers will help us see and consider these stories in fresh and rewarding ways.

As one of our early onWORD speakers said: Scripture is not meant to be consumed in high volume, but is best savored like chocolate. Take a small bite and let it melt on your tongue, enjoying the texture and taste.

Attendees at the onWORD conference come from a wide range of churches, and attendance has grown every year. For this 5th annual event, we extend a warm welcome to you -- Come and join us as we enjoy the Book!
