Decisions have been complicated in this season when we have had no way of knowing if plans will actually come to fruition. Our decision to go ahead with this year’s conference was made in faith and we are all a little bit surprised to see that it is actually going to happen! We are so looking forward to connecting with you in just days now. MEET OUR SPEAKERS

Matt King is the Pastor of Soul Care at Harvest Muskoka. He has a passion for helping hurting people reframe their thinking. His favourite type of biblical counselling approach is the Intensive format, which is a 3 day experience for individuals wanting to experience healing and walking in the fullness of God’s design for them. He recently became the executive director of a Christian non for profit focused on faith-based counselling. When he is not in the counselling room, you can find him with his wife and three children, hopefully watching a rugby game.
