Frequently Asked Questions

question   Who should attend this conference?

The 2017 VBVMI Bible Conference is designed to appeal to Christians who seek challenging and practical Bible teaching from men who know how to divide the word rightly. This conference is perfect for serious Bible students, Bible teachers, church elders, pastors, small group leaders, or anyone who wants to know, teach and apply scripture better as a follower of Jesus Christ. .

question  What will I experience at the conference?

The theme for our 2017 conference is Fighting the Good Fight: Defending the Truth and Exposing the Lies . All conference events center around defending the truth and exposing false teaching. We will examine our topic from a practical point of view.

Our four main preaching sessions present challenging exhortation from accomplished speakers, while our breakout sessions offer a more intimate gathering for instruction on a wide variety of topics. We also feature a worship team, a joint panel discussion and fellowship and prayer time with other attendees.
