Holiness In Ministries Conference Introduction
In the early 1980’s, Jim and Darla Davis, music directors at the Riverdale Assembly of God in Riverdale California, were looking for ways to improve the music ministry. They soon realized after attending several music events that most of the conferences were hosted by mega churches in large metropolitan cities and by other denominations. They felt overwhelmed and out of place.
A dream was born and in 1991 the first H.I.M. Conference was held using the Riverdale High School Auditorium. Since then, the church has built a new 900 seat sanctuary and continued in ministry to the local community. The world has changed and the new H.I.M. Conference will attempt to address these changes without losing sight of the fact that the Gospel is still the same!
Riverdale is a small western dairy town of 2500 people. Yet here in the middle of nowhere is a strong Pentecostal church of 400 with a large youth group, a bus ministry that averages over 130 kids and adults each week, a Christian school with 140 students, and a church that is still full on Wednesday nights. The goal of the H.I.M. Conference is to open the local church ministries to you and say….you can do it too!

MASS Choir Participation?
Singing in the H.I.M. Mass choir is an exciting finale to the week. Many participants do not have a choir in their local church, so it is a great opportunity to join the 120+ voices in worship on Friday night. The conference binder will include lyrics and chord charts to make it easy to take your favorite songs back to your home church. Must be 12 years of age to participate.
NOTE: If you would like to sing with the Mass Choir, please notify us on your registration form to receive access to the parts tracks that will be available online. There will only be three rehearsals during the conference so you will need to be familiar with the material before you arrive.
Those who wish to take advantage of beautiful California (Riverdale doesn’t exactly fit this description!), will find the giant Redwoods and Yosemite two hours to the east and Pacific coast two hours to the west. San Francisco is also worth a visit, especially if you are using the San Francisco airport. Some people arrive early or stay after the conference to visit these popular destinations.
