2015 Workshop

21st Century Issues: Suffering Well


Suffering, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual, can put us over our head quickly. Since God does not waste pain, we must learn how to profit through suffering by seeking the sweet in the bittersweet of God’s refinement. Join Pastor Matty as he shares through personal experience and Biblical insight how to suffer well for God’s glory and the good of His people.
