Public Service for SBC Convention.

With the SBC Annual Meeting coming in Greensboro this summer I thought how I could be of service. There are many bloggers that have expertise in certain areas. Marty Duren- well he is just information central. Wade Burleson has a passion for our missionaries. Art Rogers is an expert on Roberts Rules of order and how to handle ourselves at the SBC convention. Dorcas Hawker is analysing the makeup of the various committees. Villa Rica is our resident SBC historian. Wes Kenny is our "devils advocate" (but a great guy). I thought, what can I offer to as a service to all of our "messangers" coming to my great state this June. Everyone has their expertise and this is mine. I am providing a list of Starbucks for those coming to Greensboro so you can make your hotel reservations and your route to the convention center. I would hate for someone not to have the caffine needed to vote accordingly. For those driving north through Charlotte, here are the locations: Concord, Hwy 29 1490 US Highway 29 Concord NC, 28027 Concord Mill 8111 Concord Mills Blvd Concord NC, 28027 - This one is inside the mall.

Charlotte NC, 28207 - for those taking I-485 There are others in Charlotte, but they are out of your way as you travel to Greensboro. This one is on I-85 in Salisbury. Towne Creek Commons 916 East Innes Street Salisbury NC, 28145 -I had coffee there yesterday- they gave it to me free because they didn't have coffee ready. For those driving West on I-85/40: Harris Teeter-Chapel Hill #117 2110 Estes Dr Chapel Hill NC, 27514 Burlington Mall-- I've been here a few times. It is an old bank. You can sit in the vault-cool! 451 Huffman Mill Road Burlington NC, 27215 Harris Teeter-Burlington # 345 2727 Church St. Burlington NC, 27215 Target Burlington T-2037 1475 University Drive Burlington NC, 27215 For those driving East on I-40: Embassy Suites Winston-Salem 460 N Cherry St Winston-Salem NC, 27101 Stratford Road 110 Oakwood Drive Winston-Salem NC, 27103 Hanes Mall Blvd.---I've been here.

That's nice and all, Kevin... but I thought you were our resident BBQ expert?

THAT'S the list I'm looking for! :)

Blogger Kevin Bussey said...

I'm not a BBQ expert, I'm learning.

Now Starbucks--they know me by name. I'm like Norm on Cheers minus about 150 lbs

Blogger Kevin Bussey said...

Not only do I go to Starbucks, we have a grinder and an Aroma Grande coffee maker. I have Starbucks mugs, etc...

Before anyone has a cow..I didn't buy any of them. They were all gifts. When we moved from Mobile to Charlotte, the workers there gave up there free coffee bags for the week and gave them to me and a coffee maker, mugs, mocca mix,etc....

You are innovative, funny and my kind of guy. Still, two things:

1. If YSBC takes a coffee break during important business at the convention, I am holding you personally accountable.

2. If anyone thinks I am an expert parlimentarian, they are nuts! I know RRO through my fraternity, which means I know it moderately better than the man on the street. Fortunately, our by laws are not hard to comprehend and all I am doing is fleshing out the practical stuff.

PS: I had Starbucks last night - Thanks to Dorcas!

I also need to add that I get emails from wise people that help me dispense the knowledge.

The stuff about Barry McCarty came from people who were there, since I was not.

I didn't want to look like I was claiming their wisdom, 'cause I'm not.

I'd get a huge kick out of a coffee fast for two weeks, if you did that, Kevin. Two weeks, no coffee. I'd want to see that. I might even pay to see it. The next reality tv-show. Kevin Without Coffee

Blogger Wes Kenney said...

But what about those who might prefer another brand of coffee, like Folger's Crystals, for example?

Sorry, that's horrible. Just trying to keep up my devil's advocate image.

There is another public service you might provide: I'll be staying at the AmeriSuites - Greesnboro Wendover; it's at 1619 Stanley Road. The only thing I'll want to know on Tuesday morning at 6:00, after that 45-minute (ahem) Young Leader's meeting the night before is where is the nearest Krispy Kreme?

4/11/2006 06:27:00 PM  
Blogger Jamie Wootten said...

26 Starbuck's listed! Man that is not fair. I've got three and their all at least 30-45 minutes away.

Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not covet...

Blogger martyduren said...

You are the man!

What a list; wonder if it will fit in my pocket...

4/11/2006 08:23:00 PM  
Blogger John Stickley said...

My bad... from all the BBQ reviews, I just assumed that was your specialty.

Maybe when I grow up and learn to drink coffee this Starbucks thing will make a bit more sense to me... :)

4/11/2006 09:12:00 PM  
Blogger Kevin Bussey said...


Not going to happen.


Here are your Krispy Kreme's

Art -

Is there a rule about food and drink in the convention hall? If you don't want YSBC leaving at inopportune moments, maybe we need several camping coolers filled with store-bought Starbucks frappucinos or the like.

Or maybe we need to elect Art to be President of the Convention for next year and he can put Starbucks breaks into the Order of Business.

4/11/2006 11:07:00 PM  
Blogger Kevin Bussey said...


There better not be. I will bring Starbucks in a flask if I need to :)

Krispy Kreme and Starbucks - we're all going to be too wired to vote anyway!

4/11/2006 11:16:00 PM  
Blogger Kevin Bussey said...


Maybe we can get Starbucks and Krispy Kreme to sponsor the Young Leaders gathering!

Blogger Micah said...

^^^^^^John S.- Since you and I will be rooming together in Greensboro it's good to know that neither of us likes coffee! Although Starbucks hot chocolate rocks!

4/12/2006 01:31:00 AM  
Blogger art rogers said...


Brilliant idea to bring a cooler with the Starbucks!!! It's the genius invention that keeps hot things hot and cold things cold and will serve us well.

I perceive you have the gifts of hospitatlity and encouragement.

Not discernment, though, if you were serious about electing me to president of the SBC.

I take it you were joking about that, though.

With posts like this, it doesn't take much to see you're really a student/college minister at heart.

I wish I liked coffee...I'd have so many places to go while in the great state of NC. Now the KK's are a nice addition KB. Thanks for that info!

haha! now, this is great, bro!

hey, any linkage to local coffee shops? i'm sure there have to be SOME in the greensboro area...
