Big Camp – Vision 2020

North New Zealand Conference
3 – 11 January 2020 | Tui Ridge Park

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. 1 Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)

Our theme for our upcoming BigCamp is Vision 2020 with a focus on seeing  Jesus and His call to be His disciples, with perfect vision.

Registrations close: Thursday, 19 December.
