I WIll Build
My Church

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Conference Mission

Long ago, Jesus made an incredible promise: "I will build My church." It's a promise He continues to fulfill regardless of circumstances. It's a promise we can bank on. I Will Build My Church aims to be a conference that equips and encourages Christians to be an effective part of the Lord's promise.

NOTICE: After much prayer, the Cornerstone elders have made the difficult decision to cancel the I WIll Build My Church conference this summer due to the repercussions from COVID-19. We are saddened to have to do this, but we believe that it is the right decision. We are planning on either hosting the conference either in spring or fall in 2021, Lord willing. More details on that will be given later. Please continue to check back in for updates.

Thank you,
Cornerstone elders - Colby, Eric, Matt
