How am I supposed to put into words what was experienced that weekend? We all went expecting a good conference. Expecting challenging thoughts that would cause us to think.
We all left in complete awe of who God is, and our minds were filled, not with thoughts, but with the Truth that changed our lives that weekend.
The conference was entitled "A Taste of Ellerslie". Ellerslie itself is a 10 week, intensive, leadership/discipleship training. This weekend conference was geared to give you a "taste" of what Ellerslie was all about.
Eric and Leslie Ludy are the founders of Ellerslie, as well as the authors of some of my favorite books. I would encourage you to go to their website HERE to find out more about their ministry.
Eric Ludy taught 8 different messages over the course of the day and a half that we spent on-campus. Each one of those had powerful truths that left you hungering for more of God and His Word.
Complete abandonment Christ. Giving all for the sake of His glory. Living in the victory that He has given us. Clothing ourselves with the righteousness of God. Wrestling prayer--standing with confidence against the enemy, and not backing down. The indescribable joy and peace that comes with knowing God.
These were all part of the messages that Eric preached. You can download his Sunday morning sermons here. I would highly encourage you to download a couple and listen to them!
"Don't settle for a little better then everyone else. Constantly press forward! There is no limit to Jesus Christ--it is an endless frontier. We think of Christianity as full of limits, but really it is an unlocking of who we were really meant to be. There is no limit to the life of Jesus Christ."
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."
