The Pastor’s Conference really was a blessing. The food, the hospitality and the teaching and preaching encouraged my heart.
The Books, the gifts, the singing, the teaching and preaching was just what I needed.
The people and staff of Vision Baptist hosted one of the best conference I’ve ever attended in my 34 years of full time ministry. First Class, informative, encouraging, relaxing! I sure needed this! Like a oasis in the Warfare, but much more than that, it was a time to re focus, to examine our priorities and to encourage us to stay on track.
Thank you for hosting a tremendous Conference… I believe everyone was help to see the real purpose for our ministry and that is to reach the World!
Great conference, everything I think went well.
Pasor in a world with so many views and different teachings thank you for sticking to the BIBLE. The teaching this week has made many lightbulbs in my mind come on… I read somewhere “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet…praise GOD for HIS Word
Pastor Derik Lawrence put the following on his blog:
I had the privilege of attending the Pastorâ€™s Conference for World Evangelism hosted by Vision Baptist Church in Alpharetta these past two days. The preaching was outstanding, but the whole conference would have been worth the money (it was actually free) just for the teaching during the day! Honestly, it was great. You could really see the passion for the heartbeat of Godâ€¦Missions! Bro. Austin Gardner, Tony Howeth, Charles Blackstock, Trent Cornwell, Wayne Cofield and Chris Gardner all taught sessions or preached and all did a great job. (Sorry, itâ€™s 2 AM and Iâ€™m not putting links in tonight) However, I wanted to thank all those who did the behind the scenes workâ€¦the audio/visual guys, the ladies and men who cooked (excellent by the way), the young people who served and polished shoes, all the wives of the staff who gave up their husbands for the weekâ€¦thank you for making us Pastorâ€™s feel appreciated and loved. Mission accomplished! I learned things this week that I think will change some areas in my life foreverâ€¦time will tell and so will I, later! I am very grateful for the men who went up with meâ€¦Bro. Doug Kennedy, Doug Hoffman, Darrell Van Horn and Chad Gordon. Bro. Al Blanton also popped in after work. I love you guys and thank the Lord for you. Goodnight and Iâ€™ll tell you more tomorrow sometime.
Several others have spoken to me, one card, and two video messages. God used our church for His honor and glory and I want to thank each of you.
I hope you will plan on being part of the ministry staff when we do this conference again next year.
