The 2021 Annual Yokefellowship Conference is scheduled for September 17-18 at Camp Hebron in Halifax PA. Camp Hebron offers a beautiful woods setting at the foot of the Peters Mountain, located 18 miles North of Harrisburg. The theme of the conference is The Spiritual Disciplines, Going Deeper with Jesus and will focus 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.
All Yokefellow volunteers and others who are interested in prison ministry are encouraged to attend.
