2023 Spring Convocation – Hartland College

2023 Spring Convocation

Righteousness by Faith and its Impact on Religious Liberty

We have been called to be champions of the three angels’ messages and of religious liberty. Therefore, we need to understand the connection between righteousness by faith and religious liberty. We need to understand, what are the real issues and whose side are we on? Where does the Christian believer draw the line between obeying the laws of the land and obeying God? How can we discern the times? How can we avoid legalism and exalt God’s law in our lives?

Join us as we discuss these timely topics at our upcoming Spring convocation with Pastor Mark and Jim Howard!



“Discerning the Times” | Pr. Mark Howard
How do the current movements in our government and our world regarding freedom of speech, abortion laws, health mandates, etc., relate to liberty of conscience and our prophetic message?


8:45 am | Pr. Jim Howard

This week’s Sabbath School lesson talks about “The Good News of the Judgment.” What’s so good about the judgment? As it turns out, the good news is that God is good.


“A Matter of Submission” | Godfrey Miyanda
