OIL Conference ’09Posted: November 13, 2008
This ain’t your normal winter retreat.
You don’t go to OIL to mack on girls and check out guys, because frankly, you just don’t have the time!
You don’t go to OIL for the sweet rooms they put you up in, because honestly, you’d be lucky to get a bed.
You don’t even go to OIL to “microwave” your spirituality, because it will in fact change your life (you can count on it).
OIL is once a year, in the back hills of Montrose, Pennsylvania, where 1000 college students and young adults gather to gain a vision of God and join in one voice to give Him the worship He alone deserves. Not only does the band rock out the humble gymnasium, but you’re going to hear from some of the most gifted voices of our time (i.e. Ajith Fernando, Joshua Harris, Ralph Winters, George Verwer, Tony Campolo, Patrick Johnstone, K.P. Yohannan, etc.)
Personally, this has been one of the most foundational times in my spiritual journey. Every OIL (7 years) has served to be a critical point of departure for the ensuing year. I can’t think of a better way to spend both my money and my time. It’s not only a great deal, but you just can’t put a price on being led into a deeper love for Jesus and His people.
Check it out yo. It’s one of those things that will meet and exceed the hype. www.winteroil.org
