Tonight was one of those nights.
We got the call at the bloggers bluster that John Meador wanted to meet with us and we went over at 7:30 to chat behind the stage. There he let me know that our little band of bloggers had done the unthinkable – we’d won the election.
I will be the president of the 2017 SBC Pastor’s Conference. We received a little over 55% of the vote for our average church, exposition-focused agenda. We’ve gotten some immediate commitments of support from some folks who think our idea is a pretty good one.
I am both excited and I’m terrified. Brutally terrified. The budget of this two day event is pretty much the annual budget of my church. The logistics are a little bit more complicated than putting together a church potluck back home. But we are in this together and we are going to be looking to expand our circle. I believe we can do something that will be different. And in a good way
I’m not sure if I’m going to sleep 10 hours tonight…or not at all. But as Todd and I sat back in the green room, we just shook our heads. We hoped to make a point when we started this. Wow. We did a little more than that.
Pray for us, please. Pretty please?
