First Christian Church in Decatur, Illinois is proud to host Disciple Heritage Fellowship churches for a dynamic conference experience April 20-21, 2018. Attendees will be engaged in worship, learn best practices, and engage in a round table experience with solutions to challenges your church is facing. Attendees can expect networking with other church leaders, engaging worship, inspired preaching, and practical solutions to current issues. Also, we will celebrate the rich history of DHF during a Founders Session as we look forward to exciting developments ahead.
