Over 3,700 people are still trying to absorb all the amazing Bible teachings from last week’s Summer Institute. With 71 breakout sessions and 7 plenary sessions, there was a lot of great teachings to mull over. Attendee Jamie Bell tweeted, “What an amazing couple days with some amazing people learning so much about God’s love!”
Again, this year people from all over the globe registered to attend. People registered from South Africa, India, Canada, Ireland, England, Germany, New Zealand, Turkey and Kazakhstan. In addition, there were 117 first time attendees.
Kim Van Keuls, who oversees the logistics of the Summer Institute, commented that, “The breakout session registration worked out great! Over 1,400 people registered for workshops. There were no last minute classroom changes and classroom attendance was full but not over-crowded.” Some of the most popular breakout sessions were: Ajith Fernando’s Patience in Sin and Weakness, Dennis McCallum’s Love Therapy, Conrad Hilario’s Fighting for Friendship and Scott Risley’s workshop on Bear One Another’s Burdens.
If you missed any part of the Summer Institute or would like to listen to any of the teachings, resources will be available online. You can order all of the conference teachings, PPTs and handouts on flash drive for $49 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. While they last, XSI resources are still available at the CT Bookstore at 20% - 30% off.
Van Keuls said, “A special “thank you” goes out to all of the teachers, volunteers, facilities crew and our XSI staff who did an amazing job in making this conference an outstanding and God-glorifying event. Many people walked away encouraged, inspired and better equipped in loving others as God would have us do!
Mark your calendars for next year’s conference, July 5-7, 2017, God’s Living Word, with key speakers D.A. Carson, John Lennox and Douglas Stuart!
