97th Annual Cedar Falls Bible Conference Begins Saturday Evening, July 28
One of America’s longest consecutive annual Bible conferences will begin this Saturday and continue through Sunday, August 5. Located in the same spot it began in 1921, the Cedar Falls Bible Conference takes place on the grounds of Riverview Conference Center, on the north end of Division Street off West 1st Street in Cedar Falls.
“It’s a great opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to gather around world class preaching and top notch music to be inspired, challenged, and shaped by God’s Word” said Matt Reisetter, who is in his first year as the conference’s director. “We’re excited to get going!”
The conference, started nearly a century ago by local business leaders who wanted biblical values to influence the community, will feature 6 main speakers, 2 concerts, and a chalk artist spread out across morning and evening sessions during 9 days. There will also be a nursery and ministry programming for children ages birth through high school. “This is an event the entire family can enjoy, and it’s easy on the pocketbook,” Reisetter said.
All sessions, programs, and concerts associated with the Cedar Falls Bible Conference are free of charge and open to the public.
When asked what he thinks will be the most popular aspects of the conference, Reisetter said, “It will all be good!” He added, “Everything on the schedule has the potential of being someone’s favorite. But I’m guessing the concert by award-winning Christian music group, Selah, the sessions by John Stonestreet, President of the Colson Center, and the personal testimony of Cedar Falls’ very own Matt Slykhuis will be a few of the more memorable moments from this year’s conference.”
