Men's Conference: gods at war
On November 17 & 18 First Baptist Church in Waterloo is hosting their annual men’s conference, which seeks to bring together men from across South-Western Ontario for quality time in the Word of God and fellowship with other believers.
It features internationally known speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds (from sports to missions), all with timely messages which are relevant to men. This year’s speaker is Don Currin, Missionary Coordinator of Eastern Europe for Heartcry Missionary Society. Don is also serving as interim pastor at Providence Gospel Church in Tuscumbia, Alabama. In the past, he has been involved in a ministry of itinerant evangelism as well as church planting both as a planter and a consultant. He has founded churches in North Carolina and Alabama.
This year’s conference theme is gods at war: no other gods before me from Joshua 24:19. Kyle Idleman, the author of the gods at war study comments: “False gods battle for the throne of our heart and much is at stake! For whatever god is victorious wins control over us and ultimately determines the direction of our lives.” In addition to the teaching sessions, the conference includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and a fellowship time of bowling with pizza on Friday.
This is too good an opportunity to miss! For the past 3 years, a group of men from Benton has taken advantage of this quality conference conveniently taking place in a local venue. Come and join us this year, as together we learn to deal with today’s idolatry in our lives. The conference fee is only $40 for all sessions, meals, and the pizza & bowling.
The conference begins on Friday evening, November 17 with registration from 6:30 to 7:00pm and ends Saturday afternoon about 3:00pm. Advance registration is recommended and will be available at our Benton Men’s Ministry Booth in the Church lobby on October 29, November 5, and November 12.
