From Noon to 1:00 PM on May 7, 2016, Dick Keyes, along with the other four plenary speakers at WHY JESUS? 2016, has agreed to autograph books and personally greet as many conference attendees as possible. Purchase and read their books before coming, get your tickets now, and don’t miss Dick Keyes’ especially powerful message: “If I’m Okay, Why Jesus?”
We’re expecting that over 50 exhibits will be on display at the conference in May 2016. Ten of them are already approved and posted at http://whyjesus2016.org/exhibits/ — including His Light for Haiti (contact Janet Grant), Lambs Book & Bible Store (contact Michelle Sirois), and Missions Door (contact Rick Odess).
Do you know of a Christian ministry, church, or business that might want to exhibit? Now is the time to return an application form (which is posted online at the web site above)!
Meet Rev. Bruce Stevens, pastor of the United Baptist Church in Old Town, Maine, and chairman of the WHY JESUS? 2016 Prayer Commission — one of the most vital of our ten planning commissions. Why? Because it coordinates the prayer effort for all other aspects of our work. And we believe that the sincere rightly-motivated prayers of God’s people release the power of Almighty God.
To join the WJ? 2016 Prayer Network please email your name, city, state, and county to: prayer@WhyJesus2016.org — and you’ll begin to receive a list with specific behind-the-scenes prayer priorities each month.
We’d really like to see the Prayer Network comprised of praying people from every county in northern New England. We’re actually already well on our way to that goal. But here are the counties from which we still need representation:
MAINE: Knox county.
NEW HAMPSHIRE: Belknap, Carroll, Coos, Grafton, Merrimack, and Sullivan counties.
VERMONT: Caledonia, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, and Rutland counties.
MASSACHUSETTS: Barnstable, Berkshire, Dukes, Franklin, Hampshire, Nantucket, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Worcester counties.
If you or someone you know lives in one of these counties and is willing to join the growing and influential Prayer Network for the WHY JESUS? 2016 conference, please let us know right away.
Email full name, city, state, and county to: prayer@WhyJesus2016.org
Let’s do this together — in the power of the Lord!
Go to your nearest Staples, Office Supply, or FedEx Office store, provide them with the WJ web address (WhyJesus2016.org/#downloads) and . . . voila! They’ll print you all the WJ? 2016 promotional material that you can use and order — from large banners and posters to handbills, business cards, and bumper stickers. Click on this photo to see a larger image of the banner. Spread the word. Build some momentum. May 7, 2016, is just six months away — and coming quickly!
Some churches are buying tickets in quantity (e.g. 10, 20, 100) and then being reimbursed by those who plan to attend the WHY JESUS? 2016 conference next Spring. Might that work for your church? This is the time to take action. Stop by the Cross Insurance Center in person or visit this link: http://whyjesus2016.org/#register-now

Have you ever heard the hymn, “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise?” Have you ever sung it? Can you imagine singing it with 7,000 other believers?! Well that’s what might happen on May 7, 2016, in Bangor, Maine. So start rehearsing now. Teach this hymn to your church. Practice it every Sunday this Winter. Encourage them to come. Buy your tickets early. The lyrics are here, based on 1 Timothy 1:17. Here’s a video of the hymn. And oh, yes, don’t forget to “Like” the Why Jesus? 2016 Facebook page to stay up on the latest.
