Covenant: God’s Means of Grace to Reach a Broken World Dr. Daniel I. Block
Ever since humanity rejected God’s intention in the Garden of Eden, God has graciously been engaged in a plan of redemption. His plan is the solution to the curse that humanity and the world are under, and it seeks to restore the Shalom he intended humans and the world to live in.
The framework of this plan is a series of covenants, outlined in the Old Testament. Through these covenants, God revealed himself and his intentions for people and for the earth. These covenants reach their culmination in Jesus, son of David and the Son of God.
You are invited to join us at Steinbach MB Church as Dr. Daniel I. Block teaches on Covenant: God’s Means of Grace to Reach a Broken World. This conference is open to all registrants.

Daniel I. Block, PhD
Dan and his wife Ellen were each nurtured in the faith by the Mennonite Brethren Conference in Canada. Over the past five decades, they have had the joy of fellowship and ministry in multiple denominations, most recently College Church in Wheaton, Illinois.
Dr. Block’s research and ministry has been shaped by Ezra 7:10: “He committed himself to the study the Torah of Yahweh, to put it into practice, and to teach his revealed will in Israel.” This statement requires us to constantly ask serious questions of the Scriptures: What does the text say? Why does the text say it like that? What did the text mean to the original audience? What does the text have to say to me today? To answer these questions we need to understand both the worlds out of which the biblical texts arose and the worlds in which we moderns live.
Hosted at Steinbach MB Church in Steinbach, Manitoba or available via live-stream
Conference registration is $50 per person
