Going Deeper With Jesus

2021 Annual Conference

The 2021 Annual Yokefellowship Conference was held September 17-18 at Camp Hebron in Halifax PA. The theme was The Spiritual Disciplines, Going Deeper with Jesus and the focus was on Yokefellowship’s Seven Disciplines.

Ryan Forbes will be our speaker for the Friday banquet. Ryan was a troublemaker who kept crossing paths with a town police officer, Wendell Metz. To Wendell, Ryan was a scum of the earth kind of guy who was a constant annoyance.  To Ryan, Wendell was a police officer who seemed to have a vendetta against him.  In one of Ryan’s prison stays, he gave his life to Jesus and a transformation happened in his life.  The next time their paths crossed Ryan and Wendell Metzler ended up in a 45-minute conversation in which Ryan apologized and the two became friends.
