During the opening service of Winter Conference 2016, Bishop Philip Jones, AMIA’s Apostolic Vicar, focused on three words: humility, clarity, and unity. These words from the Lord were woven throughout the next three days as more than 200 people gathered to worship, fellowship, and learn together.

Highlights of Winter Conference, as well as links to photos and videos, are included below.
