Call to Service: Are you a physician or dentist with an earnest longing for souls?   Then the AMEN conference is for you!  Join us Thursday, October 25 – Sunday, October 28, 2018 in Indian Wells, CA.  The 2018 AMEN conference Call to Service will call each of us to a deeper level of service that goes beyond our comfort zone, challenging us to examine the significance of Christ’s sacrifice, instilling a desire to share Him on a daily basis. Speakers include:  Pastor John Bradshaw of It Is Written, and Pastor Wes Peppers; Dentists Stephen Wright and Ken Pierson; Physicians Brian Schwartz, Tash Ching, and Daphne Moretta and many others. All physicians, dentists, healthcare professionals, and pastors are encouraged to attend.  This year a special symposium for young professionals (especially residents & fellows) will be held Friday and Sabbath afternoons called: God’s Call, My Work.  We hope you will join us as hundreds of physicians and dentists from across America, and around the world, gather to answer God’s Call to Service.  For more information go to amensda.org/conferences/ or email admin@amensda.org.
