Jesus used stories when he spoke to the people.
In fact, he did not tell them anything without using stories.
So God’s promise came true, just as the prophet had said,
“I will use stories to speak my message and to explain things
that have been hidden since the creation of the world.”
Mt 13:34-35 CEV

NOAC is a Spirit-filled gathering of adults who love learning and discerning together, exploring God’s call for their lives and living out that call by sharing their energy, insight, and legacy with their families, communities, and the world.
The planning team is hard at work creating a 2015 NOAC experience you will long remember. Information about NOAC 2015 will be posted as planning progresses. In the meantime, you can look through the NOAC 2015 Registration Brochure or experience highlights from the 2013 conference.
then Jesus –
brown eyes twinkling,
black hair tousling
in Galilean breezes,
olive skin wrinkled
by salt-saturated air,
told them stories.
celebrating prodigal sons,
lost lambs found,
vineyard workers paid,
fresh seeds planted,
widow’s mite given,
considering field lilies,
rich fools observed.
then Jesus –
revealed ancient truths
profoundly redirecting life,
creating new Jerusalems.
