Conference Details

Discover the Wisdom

of Waiting on God

We have all experienced a disconnect between God's promises and our everyday reality. We wait, often without understanding why. We long to know God's plan so we can trust it, but often, God hides His plan so that we will trust Him instead.


Dr. Wayne Stiles, with deep compassion and insightful teaching, will help you understand why God makes us wait. By unpacking the Old Testament story of Joseph, Wayne will show how to find comfort and opportunity in the time between God's promises and His answers. You'll discover the perspective-altering truth that sometimes when we think we are waiting on God, He is actually waiting on us.


This conference is for anyone who:


  •  Feels a disconnect between God’s Word and daily life.

  • Struggles to understand what God wants them to do next.

  • Faces the brokenness of the world or relationships and seeks peace while waiting on God.

  • Wants to enjoy wonderful Christian fellowship and worship.

  • Needs a beautiful place to get away and ponder God's glory.

About Dr. Wayne Stiles

Wayne Stiles is the host of Walking the Bible Lands, an online video experience that gives virtual tours of the Holy Land. A veteran traveler and tour guide of biblical sites, Wayne has taught and written extensively on the devotional benefits of the Bible Lands in his videos, on his popular blog, in his books, as well as in dozens of articles for the Jerusalem Post. Wayne earned his bachelor’s degree in music theory and classical guitar—and his master’s and doctoral degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary. He also served in the pastorate for 14 years and in leadership at Insight for Living Ministries for 12 years.


Wayne and his wife, Cathy, have helped lead tours to numerous biblical sites, including Israel, Jordan, Greece, Turkey, and Italy. They have been married thirty-five years and have two grown daughters, Sarah and Katie, a son-in-law, Luke, and a grandson, Caleb. Wayne’s passion is to help connect the Bible and its lands to life. But in his free time he enjoys traveling with Cathy, woodworking, and playing guitar.

Guest Artist: Fernando Ortega

Fernando Ortega is a singer, pianist, songwriter, arranger, and storyteller. Trained as a classical pianist and inspired by the Presbyterian hymns of his childhood, Ortega has been influential in expanding the range of Christian music. He has devoted considerable attention to creating arrangements of early church music and hymns, infusing them with

instrumental and vocal character drawn from classical, folk, and world music. His songs and writing often conjure the expansive landscape of the Southwestern United States.


Ortega makes his home in New Mexico, where his ancestors first settled in the early 1600s. Over a rich and varied musical career, he has released 22 records and a book of his bird photography and tales, has traveled around the world as a touring artist, and has received many accolades and awards for his music. He is happiest at home, however, raising his spectacular daughter Ruby, working in the garden, and photographing birds.
