HOALTC 2021: Fresh Start

The Books of Romans and James


Fresh Start.   Romans provides a clear picture of the life we have because we belong to Jesus.  God has given us the gift of his forgiveness, freedom from sin and hope for the future.  It is because of Christ, we have the opportunity of a fresh start, setting a totally new direction — a new mindset — from our sinful nature to a mindset led by the Spirit, yielding life and peace.  James provides us with practical calls to action in living out our faith, so that others may see Jesus in our actions and that they too may desire the joy and hope that comes with a fresh start.

The HOALTC Board is excited to share our plans for a modified convention!  The document (link below) provides detailed information and specific instructions on how we envision the convention will work.  I encourage you to read this document thoroughly and begin developing plans for how your own congregation will execute the 2020 convention.  We realize that each state, municipality and congregation eldership will have differing guidance for when gatherings are acceptable; further, we know that timelines are very fluid at this point.  In light of that fact, the one thing we want you to know is that we will be very flexible in adapting schedules and processes to allow your students to successfully complete their HOALTC events.    If you have ANY questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask!
