RightNow Conference

In the beginning, God created light. When He made humanity, God infused the first man and woman with His own glory–so they would blaze with His light in the universe. But humanity’s sin snuffed out the flame. Through history, those who followed God flickered with His glory. Then God became human. In His perfect life and death, Jesus brought light back to our fallen race. At the 2016 RightNow Conference, we will gather together and explore how we can BLAZE WITH GOD’S GLORY–through the POWER OF JESUS’ GOSPEL and with the FIRE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. In this darkened world, WE WERE MADE TO SHINE.
