Sufficiency of Scripture Conference - Part 1

A few weeks ago I was privileged to attend the Sufficiency of Scripture Conference sponsored by the NCFIC. It was held in Covington KY (just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati), and was an enormous success in so many different ways!

First of all, it was the first conference put on by the NCFIC (National Center for Family Integrated Churches), who's staff did a remarkable job pulling together all the details and ensuring that everything ran smoothly. Secondly, it attracted around 2,600 attendants! This is almost unheard of for a conference of this nature during what is arguably the busiest season of the year. The Lord really blessed the whole event, and it was clear that many people's lives were impacted and changed as a result of some of the things they heard.

I worked the Vision Forum booth with a co-worker from Texas, so I didn't have much of an opportunity to listen to the various speakers. But the vendor hall was directly adjacent to the main auditorium, so whenever a speaker delivered a message in there the sound was piped out to the vendor hall. Even though I got to hear only a fraction of the messages, I really enjoyed the fellowship with customers at the booth, as well as the other vendors I got to speak with.

And the cold weather was fantastic too! The first few nights it lingered anywhere between 15 and 20 degrees, but when you factored in the wind chill it was more like 7-10 degrees. In my book that's pretty cold! We even got some light snowfall the first morning (I happened to be up at 6:30 am to photograph it).

I'll follow up with some more pictures and thoughts later on.
