A highly-anticipated and deeply-needed leadership conference begins Thursday.
Brad Hutchcraft oversees On Eagles’ Wings, a division of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries. Their annual Warrior Leadership Summit offers five days of fellowship, discipleship, and equipping for Native believers throughout North America.
“Our prayer is that this will reach a deeper need, maybe than ever before, because hope has been ripped away this past year. These Native young people, these warriors, will come and, whatever condition they’re in, they will … hear the Gospel,” Hutchcraft says.
“They will hear [how] God gives them a way to be stronger when they find their strength in Jesus.”
Last year, OEW held a virtual Warrior Leadership Summit to avoid the pandemic’s many risks and restrictions. While this year’s in-person gathering is a joy for many, “it’s challenging because some of those [who] want to be there the most can’t be there,” Hutchcraft says.
“Our First Nations friends from Canada can’t get across the border still … so, we’ve geared up for the online conference again. We’ll get to live stream, and [we’re] welcoming people from all over North America.”
For some, circumstances prove too desperate to postpone in-person attendance. “There’s a group from a remote village in Alaska … they’ve bought vehicles, and they’re flying to Seattle; they’re doing all these things … to get their young people to a place of hope,” Hutchcraft says.
