LETTER FROM Pastor Rob:
This Men’s Conference is going to be an encouragement and a challenge to the men in our Northeast Ohio Association of Regular Baptist Churches! We will be hearing from some seasoned men about some important topics:
How often have you wanted to share your faith and just didn’t think the opportunity arose? How often do you struggle to lead your family or others in the church? Do you feel that you have very little to offer because of your age or lack of experience? Have you thought that you would like to be a better husband, but really don’t know where to start? Do you desire to disciple someone, but just don’t have the confidence that you will know what to do? Would you like to discover what God may want you to become…A growing vibrant Christian man? Join us as we dive in to these topics and run the race that God has set before us!
What is unique about our conference is this: Not only will we have men teaching men; we will also be taking some time after each presentation for Q & A! This may be the best money you will spend this year.
-Pastor Rob, First Baptist Church Willowick
