February Amazon Pastors’ Conference

February 25, 2018 - March 4, 2018

Our annual jungle pastor conferences are the backbone of all the work JMI does in the Amazon. For 5 years we held one annual conference. In 2018 we plan to host two separate conferences. . . one in February and one in May. Eventually we hope to hold 5 conferences per year representing each of the 5 major rivers in the state of Amazonas.

Each conference needs a teaching team. Sample subjects we cover range from marriage enrichment, discipleship, children and youth ministry, teaching through books of the Bible, women’s ministry, handling the finances of your church, missions and more.
