Last night we enjoyed our second annual men’s conference at Vision Baptist! This year the theme was “Risking it All!” God blessed with great attendance as you will see in the pictures. The team did an excellent job. I cannot thank Pastor Trent Cornwell and Pastor Robert Canfield enough for all the planning and work that went into this conference!
I was actually in Burkina Faso when all the details had to be taken care of for the conference. As always they did a splendid job. I want to publicly thank them and all that worked with them to make it such an exciting night!
There was steak, potato, salad, and cheese cake! It was delicious and I think everyone throughly enjoyed themselves. There were also some games to play, corn hole, ping pong, and a tremendous game show host that gave away fabulous prizes.
We were blessed to have Pastor Tony Howeth and the men from Newton Baptist Church in Covington! Brother Tony preached and excellent message, as always. We were privileged to meet some wonderful new brothers in Christ!
Pastor Chris Grinstead and some men from Greater Heights Baptist were also with us. It was a tremendous blessing and privilege to have Brother Grinstead there. I love it when different churches can get together, love each other, and serve our great God together!
Two accepted Christ as their Saviour last night! That made the night all that much more special. Satan may fight what you try to do for Jesus but Jesus will always win!
Several of our men worked hard to bring their friends from work and the community and I think that was the second best blessing of the night. The best of course was seeing two get saved!
We were honored to have the Pilgrims sing for us. They came out of love for us and the work. They did a great job and we over worked them. Chuck Littlefield offered their services and the men seemed to really enjoy having them with us.
I love being in a room full of committed on fire men. I love having the chance to make a difference by preaching the Word of God.
The men all got down to pray and ask God to help us do more of what God would have us do in our churches. God does have big plans for us and it is time for us to wake up and do what we know to do!
We are already planning next year’s conference so go ahead and mark your calendar for January 25, 2013. We will go from 7 pm until midnight. We will try to do an even better job next year so put it down, plan to be here and invite all you know!
