MINISTERS & DEACONS CONFERENCE
letter from Elder G.M. Spotts ...
I bring greetings in
the name that is above all names, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
I pray this letter finds each of you filled with grace and power
that comes only from our Lord. I am writing today, on behalf of
the grace churches here in Chattanooga, Tennessee to inform everyone
that after much discussion and debate, we have thought it wise to
cancel this year’s Men’s Conference. This decision is
based on extremely poor registration. As of this week, we have received
only five registrations, as opposed to about 200 hundred this time
Brothers, we spend around
$12,000.00 dollars or more to host this conference annually and
in this economy, we cannot afford to host it with such poor response
and commitment. We would be poor leaders of our own flocks, to host
this conference, when there appears to be little passion or desire
from the men, concerning it. This may not be the case, but we cannot
spend thousands of dollars planning and preparing and the participants
may or may not show up!
It pains us not to have
the Men’s Conference this year, but we look forward to seeing
everyone here, at the Main conference in August. Information will
be forthcoming very soon concerning the August conference. In August,
we will have a meeting with all the men to discuss ways on how to
make the Men’s Conference more viable for future years.
On behalf of Resurrected
Baptist Church (Pastor Jacks), New Vernon Grove Baptist Church (Pastor
Toney) and New Home Baptist Church (Elder Spotts), grace and peace
to you all, it is our collective prayer that we will all grow as
a conference, according to the will of our Sovereign God.
Because of Christ, your
servant and brother,
Elder G.M. Spotts
