I had a blessed few days attending the 2016 Shepherd’s Conference. It is always good to see old friends again, and to be edified by the messages prepared by the speakers (not to mention the endless supply of ice cream and sodas!)

It is easy to forget sometimes, but these conferences have tremendous impact on the ministry, and even spiritual state, of some of these attendees. Keep these 3,000 men in prayer, that God would take what these men have learned during the conference and influence their churches with it. If even a few pastors preach better because of this conference of a few evangelists evangelize more fervently because of this conference, then it is well worth it.

“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
