Monday and Tuesday Kyle, Chuk, Wes and I took in the 16:5 Conference in Rochester, New York. WE all agreed this was one of the most helpful conferences we have ever attended. The ride home was seven hours. Our hearts were full and our minds were alive with ideas about how to lead our churches in making disciples. You will hear more about this in the near future. I keep up with their lead pastor, David Whiting here. It was good to connect with Mark Nelson, too. He is on the pastoral staff at the church.
Today I noticed someone from the GARBC office (I think it was Darrell Goemaat) got a nice picture of us while I was stuffing a banana in my face at the Conference. In spite of that, it was a happy moment. You can see that in the picture. We were chatting with Shane Miller, a staff member from Emmanuel Baptist in Toledo, Ohio.
