On the Road to Oregon

post date: June 17, 2012

Today we’re traveling from Tupelo to Cannon Beach, Oregon for a week of ministry at Cannon Beach Conference Center. If I counted right, this is my tenth time since 2006 to speak at a Cannon Beach event. I was first invited to speak there as part of Moody Week. Since then I’ve been back at least once every year.

This time we’re bringing some reinforcements with us in the form of three other couples from Tupelo who are coming for the week. One of the couples came with us last year, but the other two will get their first taste of Cannon Beach. 

Every Bible conference has its own unique flavor. Several weeks ago I spoke at Camp Forest Springs, deep in the woods of northern Wisconsin. Cannon Beach is right on the Pacific Ocean. If things go as usual, we’ll have a sand sculpture contest (which I will help judge) on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon. 

When you return to a Bible conference year after year, you build friendships with folks you would never otherwise meet. Because of Cannon Beach, we now have friends across the Pacific Northwest. 

We’re flying from Tupelo to Memphis to Los Angeles to Portland where Lisa Beedy will meet us and drive us to Cannon Beach. It’s a long day but we’re glad to do it, and we’re looking forward to all that God has in store for us this week.

Ebook: ABC’s of Wisdom

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
