Wrap-Up on Annual Gathering

May 01, 2016

I enjoyed the Churchnet Annual Gathering last month at First Baptist Church in Lee's Summit. We heard inspiring messages from Carol Bercian (Founder and Director of the Tabitha Ministry), Rev. Samuel C. Tolbert, Jr. (President of the National Baptist Convention of America International, Inc.), and Rev. Otto Echeverria (President of the Guatemala Baptist Convention). We also had great times of fellowship and excellent music from Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church's choir and FBC's choir and orchestra.

I led two rounds of a breakout session on understanding and reaching Millennials. You can see lots of photos from the weekend here.

I was also glad to be able to buy some Guatemalan coffee Carol brought as a fundraiser for the Tabitha Ministry. I love the coffee from the volcanic region of western Guatemala, and as I drink it I'll remember to pray for that important ministry. 

Before taking off to Cuba, I put together an issue of Churchnet's digital magazine on the Annual Gathering (and it went out while I was gone). In the issue, you can see lots of photos I took and read several reflections on the weekend. Check out the issue here.
