Light of the World!
September 19-21, 2017, Toronto, Ontario


You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 NIV

Join us for the Northern Lights District Conference September 19-21 at the Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel & Suites in Toronto. You won't want to miss this time of training, upbuilding, networking, and fellowship in preparation for the busy fall season. Let's polish our lamps and be the light of the world!
