2014—Joined Together

  • Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa, Coronado, CA

Jesus exemplified how gospel and medical ministry are always joined together. Church pioneers showed how physicians and ministers are joined together. Join us this year as we discuss how modern medicine and gospel ministry can be joined together. We will have a track specifically for ministers, so bring your pastor. Come enjoy intellectual stimulation, social networking, and spiritual emphasis during this special 10th anniversary conference in San Diego.
