Step out of the Boat Conference
By Joe Keim
March 1, 2021
For several years, the Lord has burdened me to host a conference—a conference where people from all walks of life gather together in one place to get challenged and be encouraged to walk in the fullness of God. In 2020, Joseph Graber, myself and a few other godly men met in Holmes County to discuss the details, come up with a date and find a place to meet, but it never happened. I’m not sure why, other than it was not God’s timing. But now that we have entered 2021, I am thoroughly convinced that we must move forward with this conference.
The conference dates are set for March 25, 26, and 27 of this year. You are invited to come. In fact, I ask you with a sincere heart, to seriously pray and seek the heart of God before you just shrug this invitation off and continue on with your life as it is.
Consider that this is our generation. It is our turn to make an eternal impact. Others before us had their chance. Now it is ours.
So, come on, move away from your comfort zone and join us this March for the Step Out of the Boat Conference. I promise, you will be challenged to get busy about our heavenly Father’s business, as well as encouraged in your faith. You desperately need it, and so do we!
As the world gets darker, dives deeper into the pit of sin, and godlessness and persecution begin to show up at our own doorsteps, one thing is more and more clear: you need me and I need you.
Let’s put our petty differences aside, and together, fall at the feet of Jesus and ask for His mercy and anointing.
What to expect:
- Common people like yourself who want more of God, but don’t really know how to get out of the rut and stay out.
- Fifteen to twenty men of God, filled with the Spirit, are scheduled to preach and share their testimonies.
- Jimmi DeLay, a preacher and friend of mine, will lead us in worship.
- Times of prayer will be offered up on behalf of those who are desperate for more of God in their life.
The conference will begin right at 7pm on Thursday, March 25, go all day Friday and end about noon on Saturday. A light breakfast (Friday and Saturday) and full meals (Friday) will be included. If you need a place to stay for the night, you can either stay at a local motel in Ashland, OH, or we will find a home for you.
We are requesting that attendees register for the conference. It is the only way for us to know how much food to prepare. We are also suggesting a registration payment of $25/person, $40/couple, or $60/family when you register.

If you come just as you are … expecting God to move in your life … I assure you

Bring your family and your friends. Do not miss this life changing event.
And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
This “come” was spoken by the One who made all things (John 1:3), and this one word had just as much power in it as the words that were spoken at creation. This was where the power came from for Peter to walk on the water. Likewise, any word spoken to us by God carries in itself the anointing and power it takes to fulfill that word if we will release it by believing it and acting on it.
Despite all the criticism that might be said about Peter in this instance, he did walk on the water. There were eleven other disciples in the boat. Although they clearly saw Jesus and Peter walking on the water, they still did not participate. One of the important steps in receiving a miracle from God is to leave the security of your natural resources (step out of your boat), and put yourself in the position where a miracle from God has to hold you up. God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). Any of the disciples could have walked on the water if they would have asked - and stepped out of the boat.comments powered by Disqus« Back to Articles
