We are pleased to announce that the emcees for the WHY JESUS? 2016 conference will be Steve & Debby Daman of Bolton, Massachusetts. The Damans have served on the Board of Directors of the AIIA Institute since 1994. For nearly 30 years, Steve has worked as an urban missionary with the Emmanuel Gospel Center in Boston as a writer and communications director. The Damans are active members of the Holden Chapel in Holden, Massachusetts. They have three adult children and five grandchildren. Steve and Debby are committed to using their gifts and experience in communication and hospitality to assure that the conference program will flow smoothly and that the focus will remain on Jesus Christ as His Spirit ministers through the speakers, the Oasis Chorale, and other program participants.
The Abbot Evangelical Free Church in Abbot, Maine, recently began encouraging folks to drop a $1 bill in a “Buck Basket” on the first Sunday of every month between now and the WHY JESUS? 2016 conference next May. That’s going to add up. It will prove valuable in helping us to meet our $125,000 + conference budget. Thanks, Abbot EFC! Let us know how your church is participating in the conference. Let’s do this together!
Here’s an invitation to link your local church’s Prayer Chain with the WHY JESUS? 2016 Prayer Network. Simply have your Prayer Chain leader email the church’s name, city, state, county, and appropriate Prayer Chain email address to: prayer@WhyJesus2016.org. That’s it. We’ll take it from there, sending your Prayer Chain coordinator monthly messages with relevant WJ? 2016 related prayer concerns and priorities. Our goal is to connect with churches and individuals in every county in VT, NH, ME and beyond. Thanks for participating!

Tickets to next year’s WHY JESUS? 2016 conference go on sale at 10:00 AM this Friday morning, May 8, 2015.
There are three ways to buy tickets to the conference: 1) Online at Ticketmaster.com — click here, 2) By phone via Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000, or 3) In person at the Cross Insurance Center box office, located at 515 Main Street, Bangor, Maine.
Ticketmaster charges a flat transaction fee every time you purchase tickets, regardless how many tickets you buy. So if you’re buying through Ticketmaster it will save you money to buy all the tickets you want at once, rather than some now and some later. Ticketmaster will also charge a fee to ship your tickets, so you can save that cost by either printing them at home (following directions from Ticketmaster upon purchase) or picking them up in person on the day of the conference.
You will certainly save money if you purchase your tickets in person at the box office either in advance of the conference or at the conference if there are any tickets left at that time.
Bottom line — we encourage you to buy your tickets as soon as you can, keep them in a safe place, and enjoy the assurance of knowing that you’ll have a seat at a truly remarkable and historic event!
