Do You Love Me?

Wisconsin Conference Camp Meeting

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the Wisconsin Conference Camp Meeting at Camp Wakonda on June 10‒18. The theme for this year is: “Do You Love Me?”

After His resurrection, Jesus asked Peter if he really loved Him. Three times the disciple had to express his love and loyalty to his Master as a sign of a genuine conversion and qualification for ministry.

“The question that Christ had put to Peter was significant. He mentioned only one condition of discipleship and service. “Do you love Me?” He asked. This is the essential qualification. Although Peter might possess every other qualification, yet without the love of Christ he could not be a faithful shepherd over the Lord's flock. Knowledge, benevolence, eloquence, gratitude and zeal are all aids in the good work; but without the love of Jesus in the heart, the work of the Christian minister is a failure” (DA 815.2).

Our evening speakers include Dr. Joe Kidder, professor of Pastoral Theology and Discipleship at Andrews University; Titus Naftanaila, Wisconsin Conference president; Peter Neri, senior pastor, Paradise Seventh-day Adventist Church; and Dr. Benjamin Maxson, adjunct professor at Andrews University.

Other mid-week speakers include Dr. Mark Sandoval, the president of Uchee Pines Institute; Drs. Claudio and Pamela Consuegra, the Family Ministry directors for the North American Division; Jack Phillips, the associate evangelism coordinator of It Is Written, Lisa Isensee, Mission Advancement officer at ASAP Ministries; and Shawn Brummund, the Family Life pastor at Granite Bay Hilltop Church in California.

Martin Young’s concert, a baptism ceremony, the annual Hallelujah Hustle, along with inspiring worship experiences and fellowship opportunities will all contribute to a special spiritual retreat for all participants.

Thank you for planning to join us for Camp Meeting 2022.


Titus Naftanaila is the Wisconsin Conference president.
