Empowered by the Holy Spirit Conference

September 9, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Dr. Leroy Bartel and his wife Sharon were involved in a serious auto accident on the way from Dallas to Denver. He was not seriously injured but she was. Because it is uncertain how long she will be in Denver, and his need to be with her, we are cancelling our “Empowered By The Spirit” conference this weekend. Please hold the Bartels up in prayer and spread the word about the conference.

Join us for this free weekend of sessions and services, “Empowered by the Holy Spirit Conference” with Dr. LeRoy Bartel at Abundant Life- 3986 Humbert Rd. Alton, IL.  This weekend is open to all people who are open to learning more about the Holy Spirit and His role in our lives.  This will benefit new Christians, those exploring their faith, seasoned believers, and even Pastors will learn a lot from author and professor, Dr. Bartel.
