If an independent church decided to host a conference and if that conference was so impressive to the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention that it acquires the endorsements, as well as financial sponsorship, of a majority of SBC agencies, one could rightly assume that the conference being hosted was a significant one. 

My friend Les Puryear is hosting just such a conference.  IMPACT 2008 appears to be a phenomenal conference that is much needed in the life of the SBC. In a time where we seem to recognize only large church pastors as the pillars of the convention, hosting a conference targeted towards small church leadership is long overdue.

So, all that being said, I want to encourage you to run over to the website [click here] and sign up to attend. You’ll hear speakers like Dr. Alvin Reid, Dr. Frank Page, Dr. Tom Ellif, Dr. Brad Wagonner and many, many others who will help hone your ability to lead the small church. It’s only $50 to attend, which is the best deal you’ll find all year.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. Hey man, I’m really considering making the drive to come to this thing! I’m adding up the cost and seeing what I can work out but I sure hope I get to see you up there!

  2. And by the way, I got my copy of Journeys yesterday and have flown about halfway through it. It’s like these guys are writing about the situation I just stepped into. I’m really loving it, can’t wait to read some more.
