Pastors & Ministry Leaders Conference

January 29 - February 1

Join us for our Pastors & Ministry Leaders Conference!

When: Monday – Thursday, Jan. 29 – Feb. 1, 2024

Speaker: Dr. Ed Hardesty


Dr. Hardesty teaches on the Bible, Jewish studies, archaeology, and the geography of Israel at Cairn University. He regularly leads study tours and participates in archaeological digs in Israel. He also serves as the University liaison for the “Semester Abroad” program with Jerusalem University College. Prior to teaching at Cairn, Hardesty served in the US Air Force in the Vietnam War and has spent over 40 years in ministry.



Worship: Jeff & Sue Duffield

If you know little about the Duffields, aside from the fact that they have new life doing contemporary hymns and even the “Oldies”, you’ve missed out on the exceptional and creative artists they have always been. Since the early 70s, while Jeff and Sue had major media venues of opportunity and exposure (PTL Club, 700 Club, 100 Hundred Huntley Street – Canada) they never strived for commercial success. They turned down many offers for record deals. Sue not only has an incredible vocal ability, she also writes much of the material they perform.

Jeff is a sought-after keyboardist, playing, producing and arranging for such artists/ministries as Jimmy Fortune (of the Statler Brothers), Doug Oldham, the Original Couriers, Ben “Cooter” Jones of the Dukes of Hazzard, Sammy Hall, Dave Boyer, Canton Junction and John Hagee Ministries. The choice to perform a more jazz, soulful influenced repertoire while mainstream gospel went a more conservative direction, proved to be their signature strength. The Duffields were performing this worship flavor a decade or more before it became popular.

Their music is rich with many layers. They are truly musicians’ musicians. But most will say Jeff and Sue’s hearts are even bigger than their music. In their later years, it’s become quite evident that their real joy is helping other artists and ministries. Their love for Jesus shines in everything they do.


Fred Kenney will be performing a shore play on Tuesday evening after the session!
