2008 AAPC Pastor’s Conference

Its about 11pm and I’m plum tuckered out, I’ve been getting ready all day to leave tomorrow for our trip to Monroe, Louisiana. I washed and detailed the car, got an oil change, pickup a few things at Wal-Mart, packed my stuff and burned 16 sermon CD’s for the trip.

Wayne and I are leaving on Sunday morning around 8 am. We decided to go to Church at Family of Faith Church in Monee, IL (about 90 min south) on our way down. FOF Church is a “Family Integrated / Home Discipleship Church” and we wanted to see it in action. Pastor Henry Reyenga, has started a ministry called “Christian Leaders” and has written a book called “The Spontaneous Spread of Home Discipleship Christianity” which I recommend, it is available for free if you ask. If you get a chance spend a little time on their websites if you are interested.

From Monee its off to Missouri for the night – then on to Louisiana for the Conference. Our first session is at 7pm and I am looking forward to it.

I wont be back till Thursday eve, until then good riddens!!!


2008 Pastor’s AAPC Conference

For the fourth year in a row Wayne (my Pastor) and I have decided to go again to the Annual Auburn Avenue Pastors Conference on January 7-9, 2008 in Monroe, Louisiana.

This year’s topic is “Liturgy and Life” They will address the questions “What is the role of liturgy in the life of the child of God?” And “what is the relationship and difference between liturgy and pastoral care”?

I called Pastor Steve Wilkins this week to further inquire about the conference. He mentioned one of the goal’s of the conference was that attendees would walk away with a greater appreciation of “how” we worship. We were created to worship and “How we worship” affects “how we live”, sloppy worship leads to sloppy living is what he said.

Even though I am a traditional “low Churchman” the topic sounds interesting enough and I am hoping to glean a little insight into the “how” and “why” of worship…

Stay tuned for more posts on the conference…
