By Denise Bubeck, THE FAMiLY LEADER
About 1,000 people came to the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines, Iowa, to hear messages of hope and cultural transformation at the 2016 Family Leadership Summit.
Encouraged over and over that our hope is not in the 2016 election, nor the next Supreme Court case, but in God alone, those who came were inspired to take up our greatest weapon in the fight for our children’s future: prayer.
“We are on a path, as a society, of degradation and a failure to understand truth,” commented attendee Don Friend of Des Moines. “But there is hope. There is aboloutely hope, and our hope is in God. As the [Summit] stressed, all we have to do is turn to Him.”
Morning session speakers included Bob Vander Plaats, Dr. Del Tackett of The Truth Project, and Billy Graham’s daughter, author Anne Graham Lotz. Afternoon session speakers included Pastor Steven Khoury of Jerusalem and actor T.C. Stallings of the film “War Room.”* Several other speakers also presented breakout sessions that featured encouragement in areas of personal revival, such as health, marriage, and evangelism.
