GARBC National Conference 2008

What an adventure!

That is the only way I could start this post. The GARBC national conference was to be in Cedar Rapids and with all of the rain and flooding at the last minute the entire conference was moved to the campus of FBBC in Ankeny. It was a tremendous success!

Hats off to the state local committee, the conference team from the Resource Center in Illinois and especially to the staff and administration of Faith Baptist Bible College.

I have had the opportunity to go to a number of national conferences over the years and this was one of the best! There was a great spirit and everyone seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere, great preaching and sweet fellowship.

One of my favorite aspects of the conference is the opportunity to get to see friends that you only get to see here once a year! The problem with that is you stay up too late and get up too early so as not to miss any of the doing and by the time the conference is over you need a vacation to recover from the fun!

I really enjoyed the preaching and the report from our GARB chaplains. What a time of encouragement!

Looking forward to next year!

I Remain,
Pastor Steve
