NACC Best Day Yet

Today started with a very practical message by Rick Stedman. Rick is the Pastor at Adventure Christian Church in Roseville, CA. Rick encouraged listeners from 1 Corinthians 13 to share faith, hope and love. Favorite quote: “Too many Christians are hope-suckers.”

Dave Bycroft from Tyro Christian Church in Tyro, KS and Dudley Rutherford from Shepherd of the Hills in Porter Ranch, CA did a great job tag-teaming a dialogue sermon. We were instructed to share grace with everyone, everywhere and in every way. Ask Debbie Holmes about the video they showed. I’ve never seen her laugh so hard.

Matt Proctor, President at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO hit an absolute home run tonight at the main session. My favorite message so far. Matt preached from 2 Timothy 2 instructing us on how to endure through the struggles of the Christian life.
1. We need the pictures of endurance: a soldier, a farmer, an athlete (2 Timothy 2:3-6).
2. We need the purposes of endurance.
We become like Jesus (2 Timothy 2:8).
We bring others to Jesus (2 Timothy 2:10).
We save our place in heaven (2 Timothy 2:12a).
3. Most of all, we need the power of endurance.
We can’t do it by ourselves. We’re strong only through the grace of Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1).

The day ended with Casting Crowns in concert. They performed the favorites: Does Anybody Hear Her; Praise You in the Storm; Voice of Truth; Who Am I; All Because of Jesus. It was a great end to a great day!
