Hi There! We arrived here in Sevierville, TN yesterday for the Polishing The Pulpit Workship. There are 6 of us in a time share owned bt one of my fellow preachers in Louisville, KY
Having a great time so far–lots of good speakers and reources. We heard B J Clarke speak about “Hungering and Thirsting after Righteousness. Also heard part of 1 of “How Can we get This Church to Grow,” by Gary Hampton, Director of ETSPM. They are going to have this and other messages by instructors form ETSPM on their web site
I met a few folks that are on FB and TFR and other forums, such as Travis Main from Cody, WY, Weylan Deaver, Jim Faughn. Hope to meet some more. The exhibit area is pretty good with many good resources.
This morning went to session led by Wade Webster, of Southhaven, MS This was first in series “New Testament Postcards.” Bible study of Philemon; later ones will be on 2nd Jn, 3rd John and Jude. Then heard Part 2 of Gary Hampton’s lesson on “How Can we get this Church to Grow.” Lots of practical material in his 2 sessions.
We are back at Bud’s Time Share resting up– will go over for the 530pm Congregational Singing and then 3 more sessions. More about them later 2night or tomorrow. I’m looking forward to getting some practical lessons on how to help the chruch grow and to help me in my personal walk for the Lord.
