Scheduled speakers included Michael Franzese, Hallerin Hilton Hill, Burt Rosen and Dr. Voddie Baucham.
I say scheduled because Michael Franzese didn't make it to the conference.
The conference started without him just fine. A band of young men, fronted by Josh Hilliker. Their music was guitar driven and carried the worshipful respect that is due God.
Hallerin Hilton Hill spoke about Wrestlemania. What do we as men wrestle with? How putting out schemes before God's plan don't work. How the fight is fixed and we don't need to fear.
Burt Rosen, President and CEO of Knox Area Rescue Ministries, shared his story and how he came to be in Knoxvile, that "God forsaken city." Very moving and reminded me that we should not worry about the 'bell-wearing unclean.'
Dr. Voddie Baucham spoke in two sessions. His topic was centered around Folklore Theology and how American Evangelicalism has watered down the Gospel, if they share it at all. The second session dealt with what the Bible says about being a Christian. Here are some of his sermons. This topic isn't yet available, but should be out next month.
About 12 men from our church attended. It was fun to get to know them better and break bread and the Word of God together.
