Do not fear, for I am with you;

Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 NASB

Covid-19 Update May 27, 2020

We are looking forward to having guests with us at the Montrose Bible Conference soon.  We have missed having you here the past couple of months.

Our county, Susquehanna County, entered the yellow phase in the PA plan to reopen on Friday, May 22, 2020.  When we enter the green phase, we believe that we will be able to have guests staying with us in a modified way.

We are following guidelines as recommended by the CDC and State of Pennsylvania Department of Health to make sure that our guests and staff will be here safely.  We are also developing policies & procedures that will help us to operate within those guidelines.

Currently, we are also evaluating our upcoming events and retreats for June and the first half of July to best determine how and if we can hold them.  We will be making those decisions by Friday, June 5th.  

Check back for updates here and on the events section of our website. 

God uses all the events in our lives to draw us to Himself.  We hope that you are growing in your relationship with Him and are fully dependent on Him during this challenging time.  Even though this has been a very difficult time for the Conference, God’s faithfulness to the ministry has been abundant.  Please continue to pray for us and thank the Lord for His faithfulness to us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jim Fahringer
Executive Director
