I have just returned from my annual trip to the Pastors' Conference at FBC Jacksonville (FL). My, my, what a time of spiritual refreshment it was. On Tuesday evening, the closing night, Jerry Vines preached his classic message, "Glimpses of Glory." The glory of God fell all around the 10,000 + people who were present for the service. The music and dramatic presentation was glorious. Even though Vines has retired as pastor, the Pastors' Conference will continue next year. It is well worth the time of any pastor and staff person to attend. The question everyone was asking was, "Who will succeed Vines as pastor of this great church?" Apparently the search committee has done a good job at keeping this matter confidential. The only speculation I heard was that it might be Max Brunson, pastor at FBC, Dallas. We will just have to wait and see. I am grateful to FBC, Jacksonville for its hospitality and graciousness in hosting this annual conference.
