Co-Workers in the Kingdom:
We would like to tell you about Wineskins Fellowship, a gathering of Jesus’ disciples who desire to dialogue about significant Kingdom issues and establish and maintain networks of koinonia within the Body of Christ. We’ve met twice a year (Spring and Fall) to fellowship and reason together for over 35 years (since 1974).
There is a limit of 44 (forty-four) participants to give all attending a chance to become involved. The conference is not a time for relaxation. We are hard at it with little time provided for leisure. Issues are merely opened up and hammered out with no view of sending everyone home with “THE ANSWER”. Wineskins is an ecumenical gathering; many different expressions of our faith will be represented, such as Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Mennonites, Baptists, Episcopalians, etc.
Everyone attending participates in paying for the conference. The speakers are not paid for their participation at the conferences; they are there because they want to be.
Such is the Wineskins Fellowship. It is our hope that the Lord will add His particular kind of success to our gathering; that we will not only enjoy the dialogue and information, but also real community and transformation.
NOTE: Participants are asked to be present for the entire conference (usually a Friday evening through a Sunday afternoon.) We have found that the objectives of koinonia and dialogue are undermined when participants arrive late or leave early. Therefore, we deem it a must for you to be there for the duration of this fellowship.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to become a part of this fellowship. If you have any questions, please call Pastor Rich Read (310.350.9906) or Scott Kjos (310.678.7831).
