Official Website of the Minnesota State Conference of the Churches of God
Our purpose is to co-ordinate and assist the members of the conference in worship, training, edification and evangelism.
One way this is accomplished is through the gathering of our members for conferences. The vision of a place for our members to meet was realized with the establishment of the Long Lake Bible Camp. Twice a year we gather together to worship together, learn together and join together making lifelong friendships.
We also conduct summer camps to teach the youth of today the message of the gospel. Two week long camps, one week for Jr Campers and one week for Sr campers, help youth with Biblical solutions to everyday Christian living. The unique island campground also provide opportunities for friendship and recreation with other Christian youth.
These conferences and camps bring many into a relationship with God and his son Jesus that last a lifetime. Through the people of the Minnesota State Conference’s mission department, many here in Minnesota and throughout the world have been influenced for Christ and his coming kingdom. This is the primary focus of our efforts here at the conference and in our lives.

As this is published on August 21st 2017, an event will happen that hasn’t happened in the US for over a century ...
n 1806 the HMS Victory saw another light in its path in the deep fog.
They tried to warn the other vessel: Other vessel, divert your course 15 degrees.
The other vessel replied: You need to divert your course 15 degrees to avoid a collision.
Back in Rochester, once on the way home from work, I asked Gaylene if anything interesting had happened at work that day. She said well, she heard there was another floaties sighting.
I said "What??
"Oh you didn’t hear of the bath floaties?"
Obviously I had not.
If you are not familiar with the story, I will summarize what she told me:
Are you familiar with the Horseshoe crab?
Did you know that their blood is blue? Humans have red blood since our blood is based on iron, but the Horseshoe crab’s blood is based on copper, so it is more like baby blue.
Did you know that most of us have a minute quantity of their blood inside of us?
Backing up the story…..
Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!
At the height of the eighteenth century, Muslim pirates were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic.
