I hope you will join my wife, Annette, and me at the mountain for Langham’s 6th Annual Vision Weekend, at Mountain Shadows in Paradise Valley, Arizona. With the iconic Camelback Mountain as our backdrop, this is a time to be renewed by God’s Word, encouraged by uplifting worship and fellowship, and inspired by testimonies of how God is calling a people to himself–and how we can play a part. 

We have attempted to answer any questions you might have about Vision Weekend 2018 below. If you still have any questions, please do not hesitate to either call or email us.

I look forward to seeing you at the mountain!

Blessings in Christ,


Benjamin K. Homan
