The NAFWB convention is quickly approaching. My wife and I will make the 2.5 hour drive from Nashville to Memphis on Saturday. Others will be driving and flying from all over the world. As many people put the finishing touches on sermons, lessons, booths, songs, memory work for Bible verses, or annual reports, I’m thinking about the things I’m looking forward to about the 2012 NAFWB National Convention.
- The FWB21 Panel–you’ve likely heard about it from @fwb21 or myself, but this year’s discussion promises to be a good one, and hopefully a very healthy one, as six panelists, and one moderator (Tommy Swindol) discuss racism, world evangelism, and how the gospel impacts both of these issues. I’m looking forward to tweeting my own questions on this topic. The panel is at 9pm on Monday night in rooms L5-7.
- The FWBBC Name Change Vote–I get to vote this year! Pretty sweet! I’m also planning on making a motion that we put Daniel Webster in charge of creating a NAFWB dictionary, explaining all the terms we’ve come up with over the years.
- Paul Harrison’s Workshop–It’s titled “Top 10 Things Every Young Pastor Should Know.” It’s Monday at 11 in room L13. I really, really hope I get to attend this.
- Prayer at 7:30 Every Morning–my brother, Josh, who is leading worship in the adult services all week, asked me to lead a prayer time every morning in the prayer room. I’m looking forward to praying for those speaking that day and everyone involved in all the services, that the Lord would use His Word to accomplish what He pleases.
- Tweet Up Lunch on Wednesday–for anyone who’d like to join, we’re having a tweet-up lunch on Wednesday at some point. Last year we had about 30 people come. Just bring your own lunch to a certain location that we will determine at some point! It’s supposed to be vague! It’s twitter! Just follow @jacobriggs or @pastor_daniel or @c_talbot or @ccariker for info. Or keep an eye on the #NAFWB tag, which I’m sure will have some info. What do we do at a tweet-up lunch? No idea. Just hang out and eat and talk with people about life and ministry and stupid stuff like Twitter.
FYI, here is the NYC program.
Here is the NAFWB program.
What are you looking forward to at the NAFWB Convention?
