An Incredible Opportunity

I want to share with you an incredible opportunity that we have coming up at First Baptist Church Covington.

Beginning Monday, January 28 at noon and continuing through the evening of Tuesday, January 29  – the Louisiana Baptist Convention Evangelism Conference (ECON) will meet on the campus of FBCCov.

People from all over Louisiana will be attending.  This conference is not just set up for ministers.  In fact, it is planned with local church people in mind.

Monday Afternoon will be a message by Chip and Fred Luter.

Monday Evening will be a time set apart for reaching students and young people with the Gospel, presented by Ed Newton, an effective and well-known youth pastor.

Tuesday Morning there will be a Message by Eric & David Hankins

Tuesday Afternoon – Senior adults are targeted with music by David Phelps and a message by Argile Smith.

On Tuesday night, we get to hear Lee Strobel.  Lee Strobel is one of the best known Christians in America.  He came to know the Lord out of a heart of cynicism and unbelief when he set out to prove Christianity wrong.  From that experience, he has written The Case for Faith and The Case for Christ.

Many of you will know gospel singer David Phelps. He will lead in a concert as part of the Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening programs. Benji & Jenna Cowart, David Logan and the SE Louisiana Church Orchestra will play important parts in the whole conference.

ECON is for you – please plan to attend. There is no fee for the conference, and you are invited.  You can find the entire schedule next week in the Vision.

This is the only time this conference has been held in our region. Let’s take advantage of an incredible opportunity.
