Gideon Conference 2017-09-05T12:20:17+00:00

Join us for this

incredible Conference.

We are excited to introduce our 1st Annual Gideon Conference.  This event was birthed out of a desire to say “Thank You!” to all of you who have loved and supported Maranatha Ministries and John and Betty Jo over the last three decades.  It is your encouragement and generosity that has enabled us to minister all these years and is what sustains us for the future. And we have an incredible vision for the future.

We are going to have three days of amazing worship, inspiring teaching and fun fellowship. John Hobbs will be sharing the Word as well as some special guests.  Scott Hobbs with Higher Place Ministries will be leading us in worship.  There could be no better place to do this than the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina; and no place more appropriate than “Kill Devil Hills.”  We are additionally thankful for Liberty Christian Fellowship who will be our host location for the conference.  So, mark your calendars and get excited.  If you are on our mailing list, you will be receiving a newsletter with a registration card soon.  If you are not, contact us to get registered.

Cost: $75.00 (single)* $135.00 (married couples)*
