Everyone welcome!

Karuizawa is a beautiful place to retreat and escape the heat of Summer.  Our prayer is that the conference will be a week of spiritual refreshment as we drink in God's Word, worship, fellowship and relax together.

Our first gathering for prayer begins at 9:30am on Sunday morning, followed by the first main session at 10:00am. 

Participation in the conference is FREE but each day you have the opportunity to make an offering that will go directly to cover the expenses of the conference.

Traugott was born in Germany and is currently the director of the Academy of World Mission, which is where he first met his wife, Magdalene, when they were students.
