IFCA International members gathered in South Bend, Indiana, this week for their annual convention. “Centered on the Gospel” was the theme, and participants could attend seminars, network, and encourage one another in the ministry. Randy and Ruth Grimm and Skip and Ginger Hessel represented Calvary with a display table and a reception on Wednesday. Alumni and friends of Calvary enjoyed fellowship and heard updates on how God is working and blessing this school.

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
Alumni and friends of Calvary gathered at a reception on Wednesday night.
Calvary representatives also attended the IFCA Youth Convention in West Virginia.
During the last week of June, several Calvary staff and faculty traveled to the IFCA International Convention in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was a good time of fellowship, encouragement, and messages on the topic of “Always Reforming.” Dr. Bitner gave a seminar on church security issues, and he, Dr. Hessel, Ginger Hessel, Randy Grimm, and Ruth Grimm represented Calvary throughout the week at our display table. On Wednesday evening there was a gathering for Calvary alumni and friends with more than 35 in attendance. Dr. Cone spoke at the first General Session and then spent the rest of the week as the main speaker for the IFCA Youth Convention in Upland, Indiana.
