Foursquare Convention 2008 is going to Houston May 26-29, providing an opportunity for the Foursquare family to gather and be challenged, inspired and encouraged. The promotional brochure for the convention is in the mail, and details are now available online.
“This is no ordinary season—the Lord is making that clear!” says Foursquare President Jack Hayford. “And this is no ordinary time—the hour calls for awakening! That’s why I’m asking each pastor, leader and member to pray and plan to attend this year’s convention, with an urgent passion for God to move among us.”
Speakers and Worship Leaders
Nationally recognized speakers such as Kirbyjon Caldwell and Robert Morris will be joined by Foursquare leaders, including Jim Tolle, Tammy Dunahoo, Dale Evrist, Randy Remington, Peter Bonanno, Tony Krishack and Pastor Jack Hayford.
The convention will also provide an opportunity to worship together with praise and worship leaders Israel and New Breed, Roger Thrower, Carolyn Foster and Eric Green.
Accommodations and Activities
The official convention hotel is the Hilton Americas—Houston, which will offer the best location and value. Several other nearby hotels also offer a discounted convention rate. All registrations include free breakfast.
The Foursquare Urban Dialogue is an added conference that will begin after the convention on Friday, May 30; it will give leaders an opportunity to share ideas for national strategies as well as hear new ideas that can be used in the local church. There is no cost; however, registration is necessary since space is limited.
