The Johannesburg Church of Christ is excited to announce the 2018 Encounter Program. We are inviting college students from our worldwide fellowship to come to Johannesburg from July 9 - August 6, 2018 to encounter our beautiful culture, people, South African wildlife, and more importantly, to be equipped and empowered to help the tens of thousands of university students throughout South Africa to encounter the true Jesus Christ.
Ministers from all over the East Coast set out to teach, train and inspire over 1400 students at the ICMC East Conference in Asheville, North Carolina last month. The theme was "Alpha/Omega" and the focus was on how great our God is. The main sessions and breakout sessions combined moving worship with powerful, God-centered sermons. The audio from these lessons is now available here through SoundCloud.
“It’s a change. It’s different.” These were the words of the hilarious Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercial parody that advertised the long-awaited ICMC East 2017. And like the words above, the conference was definitely a departure from years before. It was not held on July 4th weekend. It was not the usual Thursday through Sunday schedule. It was not even held in a renowned, bustling city. It was different indeed and many are saying that it was one of the best ICMCs ever.
The call was not a familiar number, so the call was not answered...but the Lord provided and they left a message!

Yes, the Lord provides!
ICMC East is quickly approaching at Ridgecrest Conference Center in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains on August 4-7! This year is going to be extra special. We will be in Ridgecrest, North Carolina for an all-inclusive four days of time with God and one another. What's going to be extra special:
The calling of Jesus is alive again in the campus ministries. On the last weekend of February the campus ministries across the Southeast US came together for an incredible retreat in Ocoee, Tennessee. Over 500 students came to learn to walk "In His Steps." The retreat focused on the book of 1 Peter and the call to follow Jesus' steps. God spoke through the whole weekend with our guest speakers, Jesse and Alexandra Ghoman, campus ministers from Boston.
