The Lord met with us during the second annual Preacher’s Delight Conference. Delegates gathered from across the country for a week of Spirit-filled preaching and fellowship. I was amazed and humbled by the crowds and the number of preachers who were in attendance.
Each night the Immanuel Baptist Church choir began the service with outstanding singing. During each service, several different groups sang as the music was uplifting and Christ-honoring. A highlight of this meeting is certainly the music of the Immanuel Baptist Church. I had several delegates comment that it was worth coming to the meeting just for the music.
The preaching touched our hearts and the move of God in each service was evident. I am thankful for humble men of God who allowed themselves to be a blessing to all those in attendance but especially to the other preachers. Each message was on target and challenged all to remain faithful and do more for Christ. Old-time preaching was not only on display but readily received by those in attendance. The altars were filled each service and God’s people were strengthened.
The emphasis on fellowship is without a doubt a unique highlight of the Preacher’s Delight Conference. It was a pleasure to meet dozens of preachers for the first time and make new friends. The evening fellowship meal is something unique to the Preacher’s Delight and gives delegates time to meet one another while enjoying an outstanding meal.
During the week it was also a blessing to me to watch preacher’s kids from around the country get to know each other and begin to develop friendships. Church planters, missionaries, and pastors expressed their joy in their children making friends and enjoying the week.
Another highlight was the Ladies Fellowship hosted by my wife. Each morning while the men assembled in the auditorium the ladies gathered for fellowship over breakfast. This provided ministry wives to get to meet each other and fellowship. A devotion with interaction gave the ladies an opportunity to get to know each other and make new friends.
“I’ll be back next year.” “I’ve found my crowd.” “I’m bringing my staff.” “This meeting helped me.” Registration is now open for next year and we are already receiving registrations. Make plans to join us for the Third Annual Preacher’s Delight Conference on October 27-29. Lodging is provided for each preacher who registers.
