I had the privilege to attend the Calvary Chapel Senior Pastor’s Conference. From Bob Coy, to Pancho Juarez, to Franklin Graham, to Pastor Chuck, to Ray Bentley, to Mike McIntosh, to all the fellowship of Church Leaders one could ask for. It as both humbling and overwhelming to be among such heroes of the movement.
Throughout the entire conference, I was overloaded with the amount of information that was shared. So many encouraging quotes, so many prophetic utterances, and so many practical ideas; all of which have encouraged me in my calling as a Pastor.
During the Conference, I was really excited to hear Bob Coy. I had heard him speak to my peers at a Calvary Chapel Youth Conference, I have heard him speak to the people he is a shepherd to at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale, but I had never heard him speak to his own peers, or the people that invested in him. Needless to say, his teaching on Revelation 3:11 was such an encouraging word that it made me want to research and learn from Bob Coy a little more.
I found this video that is so practical and powerful. Ed Stetzer is a genius, and if you want to glean a little from a guy who thinks outside the box, I would go on his site, follow him on twitter, and tune in to the Exchange as much as you can.
I hope this encourages you to “Stay the Course”
Also here are my notes from the Pastor Bob’s message at the CC SPC.
