June 3 – 7, 2015
Fall is in the air, and it’s time for Camp Meeting! With camp meeting music and soul-stirring preachers, a blessing is coming your way.
See the Day Approaching. We do many things when we gather at this annual event. We worship, pray, learn, fellowship, meet new brothers and sisters, strengthen our relationships and much, much more. This year, we want to make sure that we think about the approaching return of Christ. You know that it's easy to get caught up with keeping up with all the demands on us, our families and our churches. It's possible to spend all our time and energy maintaining a routine. But we know that the world will not go on the same forever. Christ will come back for a people prepared and watching for His return! So let's take time to think about how this should stir us to action!
It's time to revive! God always meets with the ministers and people of the Heartland in our annual Summer Summit, and we are fully expecting His presence in our midst this year. We invite all who are thirsty to join with us.
There will be many things you've come to know and love about Summer Summit, along with a couple of new events. Bring your church or bring yourself, but be sure and come!
See schedule below:
Let the children come! The Heartland Retreat Center playground is now complete and open for good times. It's worth the trip out just to enjoy one of our new swings.
Many pastors and churches would like to plant a church but feel unprepared for the task. The three objectives of this seminar can change that:

Why: "We feel compelled to open a window and offer new hope!" Special needs children are some of the Heartland's most forgotten people. Their families' needs are also routinely overlooked. We must change that in the Heartland!
