Men's Conference kicks off summer on campus

Men's Conference kicks off summer on campus

Training for godliness was the focus of 2013 Men's Conference, which brought pastors and Christian leaders together for a time of encouragement at BBC&S.

"God's Gym" was the theme of the May 16-18 event, which kicked off the summer camp and conference season on the Clarks Summit campus.

Offering men spiritual growth and revitalization, the annual retreat-style conference included powerful general sessions, hands-on workshops, and plenty of relaxation and fellowship.

"I enjoy getting more knowledge of the Word," said Charles Hazzard of Westboro, NJ. "I'm a new Christian, so I need more of the head knowledge at this point. Coming here helps. The sessions and workshops give me just what I need."

General sessions explored what it means to train to be godly and discover the difference between works-righteousness and works of the Spirit.

"This is my fifth year coming to the conference," said Robert Ault of Lancaster, PA. "We come for the speakers and the program - and the food. The fellowship is a highlight."

BBC&SPastor David Whiting (BBC, 91; BBS, 01) was the keynote speaker for the conference. A 20-year ministry veteran, he is the lead pastor at Northridge Church in Rochester, NY.
