Mission Conference

Today I want to share a little bit about our second annual Church Growth and Missions Conference. It is held in the fall each year and all of our ministers in the state are invited to come. We will have some from Kansas too.

Our Pastor decided God was leading him to minister to the pastors in our area who were unable to leave their churchs to attend camp meetings and minister conferences in far off places. Taking a week or to off to go across the counry is not always an option in small town America. Pastors need to be fed and refreshed. Pastoring and giving everything you have often leaves ministers empty and dry. Pastors need to be ministered to themselves. A church that doesn't look out side of themselves will die. It is so important to reach out to the lost, the poor, the starving, and the dying. We possess a strong missions program and are doing all we can to improve that program.

Our key speaker this year is Guy Duininck. I don't know if you have ever heard him but he is a dynamic speaker and we are truly blessed to have a man of his caliber. Tonight we have a catered meal, a special band to perform a small concert, and then Guy speaking. It will be awesome! Tomorrow we have more speakers and Guy will speak again. It is so amazining what a small church in rural Nebraska can do. The concert will be on our cable stations, our website, and you can get the tapes if you ask for them. Our website reaches people all over the world. We get email from 15 different countries. We touch the world, how cool is that!

I am so excited, I hope you have a heart for the missions too. That is where God's heart is, if you trully love Him there your heart will be too. After visiting third world countries I know the way most of the world live, very few have even heard the name of Jesus. We must change that. I hope your church is out there doing it's part to reach the world. Nothing is more important to God.

God bless you all. I pray you will have a wonderful weekend.
