I am excited to tell you about a unique opportunity that God has provided for our church. On Sunday, June 2, Spinning Road Baptist Church is proud to host a Bible Conference presented by Answers in Genesis’ representative Bob Gillespie. The conference will consist of four sessions and will be for elementary students to adults. The first session will be during the Sunday School hour and will cover “The 7 C’s of History from the History Book of the Universe.” The next session will be during our morning worship service, with the topic being, “The Key to Reclaiming the Culture.”
Then in the evening, beginning at 6:00, Bob will speak about “Building a Biblical Worldview,” followed by a session at 7:00 entitled, “Creation Evangelism: Why Won’t They Listen?”
This conference is a slightly condensed version of conferences presented all over the country, which are quite expensive to put on. Due to our proximity to AIG and the generosity of Mr. Gillespie and his desire to teach these important biblical doctrines, he is coming on a love offering basis.
I am asking you to do all that you can to reserve that day to give to the Lord and to prepare to be inspired by and instructed in the Word of God. Also, your generous offering will be an encouragement to Bob and will truly make it worth his time and effort to be here. Here is an introduction to our upcoming speaker.
Bob was raised in a Baptist pastor’s home where he received the Lord as his Savior when he was eight years old. From then on, he knew that God wanted him to do something for Him. Bob graduated from Cedarville University where he met his wife, Lois, then finished his Masters of Ministries Degree at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA. The Gillespies taught in Christian schools in Ohio for 14 years and then served two terms at MK schools in West Africa. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.
Bob’s goal today is to teach the teachers (i.e. parents, Sunday School teachers, youth directors, pastors) the same things he has taught his students in schools for many years: to uphold the authority of God’s Word from verse one, to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to confront the forces of secular humanism that are taking over our culture.
These are the things that I, too, desire for our treasured church. Let’s make June 2 a wonderful day for Spinning Road
