Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting for the first time, Pastor Leroy R. Armstrong, Jr., who was a special guest of our out-going president Dr. Robert A. Lee during our Thursday session. He is Pastor of The House of Hope Church thohchurch, Cedar Hill, TX., Conference Director of the International Conference on Expository Preaching sponsored by E.K. Bailey Ministries and also a Field Sales Representative for Logos Bible Software.
Pastor Armstrong set our hearts ablaze as he shared many exciting features of this awesome technology. I have been a user of this software since the late 90's but it never ceases to amaze me what this personal research assistant can do.
Many of the pastors had never heard of this treasure but Pastor Armstrong changed their minds instantly and now they are users. While we realize this technology can not make one a better preacher, it can assist in preparation.
We ended the day with a challenging message from our out-going president to keep our convention strong as we meet the demands of ministry ahead.
Although unexpected, I was elected 1st Vice President of the Convention serving on the leadership team with Pastor Wayne L. Moore of Olivet Missionary Baptist Church olivetmbc of Indianapolis, Indiana, who now serves as President.
Please keep us in your prayers as we strive to do the work God has entrusted to us.
