Mark Twain said that he could live a whole week on just one compliment. That is because encouragement is the energy of life and it is just a fact of life, that we all need encouragement to keep us energized.
This year’s annual meeting of the BSCM will be one of those places where you can get energized. A place where you can get refueled and filled. You will be encouraged to discover that our concerted efforts as a state convention is making a difference in Michigan and beyond as we together punch holes in the darkness.
You will hear reports from the various ministries that we support and you will hear the testimonies of changed lives and churches. There will be music and worship that touches your heart and moves your soul. And of course there will be preaching and teaching from God’s Word by great preachers that will be life changing.
I promise this will NOT be some boring business meeting where we drone on and on about nickels and noses. We will inform you of those things but most of all you will be encouraged in your walk and work for the Father.
This is going to be fun. This is going to be inspiring. This is going to encouraging. I look forward to seeing you there.
