Well spent Cooperative Program $$!

Today I am near Hickory, NC at one of the NC Baptist Conference Centers called Hollifield Leadership Center. It is on beautiful Lake Hickory. I am attending a Pastors' Awareness Learning Experience which is part of the Pursuing Vital Ministry of our state convention. So far this has been a great experience. Pastors' Awareness Learning Experiences are routinely held to build awareness about how the journey can help congregations discover and live into their full kingdom potential. What is awesome about this is it cost my church nothing. Our CP $$ go to help pay for this. For a small to medium sized church this is great! With so many bad stories being exposed about the CP, I wanted to share my appreciation. Thanks to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina for this wonderful experience!

Pastors' Awareness Learning Experience?

Isn't that a little beyond the P.A.L.E.?


I'm home with the kids all afternoon, and feeling a little goofy. Thank God for my wife!

Scary, I was trying to come up with a joke about "P.A.L.E." as I clicked the comment link and then saw Wes's comment. Do great minds think alike, or am I just going crazy?

Kevin - I am glad you are having a good conference and am encouraged that some of our CP funds are being put to good use.

Kevin, Hickory is beautiful. You're not too far from Cherokee are you? I spent a weekend there in January once when I was at Auburn. Gorgeous in the winter. But cold as Hell, Michigan.
