2012 OnWord Conference on The Life of David

Saturday Sessions

Four Teaching Sessions on the Life of David
1. The Life of David: Family Man, featuring Dr. Willy Muller
David was many things, but he is not remembered for being an outstanding father. See what lessons we can learn from looking at David’s life at home.

2. An Actor’s Journey with the Life of David, featuring Jason Hildebrand
It’s one thing to read the story – but to write a play based on David’s life, and then to perform those scenes and those words over and over again? Jason will talk about ‘living’ the Life of David.

3. It’s a Cold and Broken Hallelujah! The Life of David in the Book of Psalms, featuring Dr. Jerry Shepherd
Taylor Seminary Old Testament professor Dr. Jerry Shepherd will share rich insights into the Psalms – the praise, the laments, the complaints.

4. David’s Journey into the Heartland of God’s Kingdomfeaturing Pastor Sieg Koslowski
For all of his failings, King David may be best described as a man after God’s own heart. Re-trace his journey into the Kingdom of God.

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!
