Sweet Home Alabama

Actually it’s not my home but it’s a cool song! This week our staff will be headed to the All Access: ARC Conference 2008 in Birmingham, AL.  Church of the Highlands and Pastor Chris Hodges will be hosting this year’s conference.  This is one of the highlights of the year for Martha and I as we get to connect with hundreds of our friends from around the country and experience 3 days of powerful teaching and training.

This year we will have the privilege of hearing from Brian Houston, Pastor of Hillsong Church, Sydney, Australia.


An amazing church that is impacting Australia, Europe, Africa and the world.  Martha and I have been personally impacted by Pastor Brian, his wife Bobbie and the Hillsong team.  Others that will be involved in the conference include:

Dino Rizzo, Healing Place Church, Baton Rouge, LA; Craig Groeschel, Life Church, OK City; Stovall Weems, Celebration Church Jacksonville, FL; Jonathan Falwell, Thomas Road Baptist Church, Lynchburg, VA; Rick Bezet, New Life Church, Conway, AR; Greg Surratt, Seacoast Church, SC; Billy Hornsby, Exec. Director of the ARC

ARC stands for Association of Related Churches and is a network of churches around the U.S. that focus primarily on planting churches.  I’d appreciate your prayers as I speak Monday morning for a pre-conference event and then Tuesday afternoon for one of the sessions.

  • It is going to be an awesome conference!
    I am so excited to see what God is going to do through All Access.
    Make sure to stop by and say hey at the light board.

    It looks as if will be a powerful time. I know you’ll be representing us well and bringing the C3 flavor to the conference. Have a great time Pastor.
