Friday May 5 – Sunday May 7, 2023


Spring Conference is finished! After three years of not hosting any events on our campus, we were thrilled to invite you back to enjoy great Bible teaching, fellowship and food. We enjoyed missionaries sharing about what God is doing through their ministries around the world. We capped it all off with the Commencement Exercises on Sunday, as we honoured and send out our current graduates.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Wendell Calder

Wendell was born on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada and was born again at an early age in his home church, North Road Baptist Church. He is a 1959 graduate of New Brunswick Bible Institute and began his pastoral ministry the week following graduation. Wendell pastored a total of 16 years and founded the Woodland Baptist Church, Baileyville, Maine in 1963. He founded Living Waters Bible Conference in 1970, a ministry which continues to reach all ages with the gospel of Christ. He founded their present ministry of Local Church Evangelism in 1975. This ministry has taken him to six continents sharing the gospel message. In May, 1982, Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, TN conferred on him an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree. Wendell and his wife, Joan, reside in Florida.
