The Holy Spirit

RUF Northeast Fall Conference

Friday to Sunday (9/29-10/1) The Rev. Ricky Jones (former RUF minister now church-planter in Tulsa) will be speaking from scripture on The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. Ricky will lead us from scripture in asking questions like What is the difference between the Holy Spirit's conviction on the one hand, and shame on the other? Why does the Holy Spirit feel distant? How do I grow in the Holy Spirit?

Also there will be all sorts of free time and free-time activities like pool tables, ping pong, foosball, sports, a camp fire, hiking, paintball... a 24-hour gym and cafeteria--with wifi, hot chocolate and coffee--yes it's good for studying! We'll be joining with RUFs from BU, Harvard, MIT, UConn, and UVM. Looks to be a fun time; sign up today!

Date & Time: Friday 9/29 to Sunday 10/1
Location: Camp Berea in Hebron, NH

All are welcome!

Ricky Jones is an epic failure who has continually fallen backwards into grace. He grew up true redneck in rural West Tennessee, and left the woods to attend Vanderbilt University with no idea what he was getting into. While there he met the gospel of grace through Reformed University Fellowship, and his wife Bianca Huth. After college, he attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson MS and received his M.Div. in 1995. He left seminary thinking he was the most intelligent man on the planet, but soon learned humility as he struggled through ministry with RUF. Without the strong friendships he made during those years, he would certainly have burned out in the ministry and in life. After 11 years with RUF, he planted RiverOaks Presbyterian Church in Tulsa OK in 2006. He and his wife have 1 amazing child and 3 other children, four in all. They are all teenagers. Even more than preaching, Ricky loves to get pastors together and help them experience grace together. He passionately believes that no one is able to thrive in this world alone, and no one should try. Deep, healing, encouraging friendships are available for every person if he or she prioritizes them.
