What is Faithwalkers?

Faithwalkers is a yearly conference, hosted by Great Commission Churches, for young and old followers of Christ to be motivated and encouraged in their walk of faith. The conference features passionate worship, practical Biblical teaching, and fellowship with believers from throughout the US and the world. Faithwalkers will be December 29-January 1 in Des Moines, Iowa at the Iowa Event Center. The theme is “Between Two Worlds.”

Conference Theme

For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.” – Hebrews 13:14

As followers of Jesus Christ, we live as aliens and strangers in a foreign land. This world is not our home. We look to the heavenly kingdom which is to come. As heirs of eternal life we are to defy this world’s values. As G. K. Chesterton wrote, “A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.” At the same time we live as residents of this world, called to love and serve our earthly neighbors and neighborhoods. We are called to be fully present in this world as we partner in God’s redemptive plans and proclaim the good news of our King.

How do we as Christians practically live between these two worlds? Come and learn how to live for the world to come. Come to Faithwalkers Midwest 2017.
