SE Navigators Military conference

The following is a post that I sent for our Ft. Campbell Ministry contacts....

Team Campbell,

Great time this weekend at the SE Navigators Military Conference in Toccoa GA.

Toccoa… Currahhee!!! For some of you folks….

Ministries from Ft. Bragg, Benning, Campbell, Knox, Rucker, Stewart and Eglin Airforce base, Hurlburt AFB and a few other Airforce and even Navy ministries joined us.

About 201 total people….

A few high points of the conference…

Chuck Wood talked about several key points: We must grow in our Commitment, Competence, and Connectedness to Christ and our Brothers and sisters…

In the parable of the Talents (matt 25) … God’s idea of reward= more given responsibility

God gave talents according to their ability

Those who were faithful with what was given to them- God gave more…

We must be leveraging our assets (time, money, relationships… etc.) for the expansion and progression of the Kingdom of god

A few other blurbs from others at the conference:

“God will not be known casually” …. Bill Mason

“The community that we have here is outstanding and encouraging” … James Carter

“Jesus is fundamental in the Basics”… Ben Kayser

“Deliberate practice is what separates the world class athletes from the good athletes”… Joseph Peer

“The only way to get 7 years of experience, is to go through 7 years of experience”… Chuck Wood

“Vision is what gives purpose and motivation to the Basics of the Christian life”… Joe Ebuen

“I’m following Christ despite my shortcomings, insecurities, and what happened in my childhood”… Matthew Clark

"Do not attach your ego to the process"... Chuck Wood

One of the things that really encouraged me as well was to hear a couple of our younger single soldiers talk about how they wanted to take some serious time contemplating how and if they were truly faithful , available, and teachable to Christ. Guys were walking away challenged and considering how they might look to be more committed to Christ and what ways were they not allowing themselves to be fully committed to Jesus.

All in all... an outstanding time in fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ.

Please feel free to post any thoughts or questions from the conference.

Even if you didn't go... please feel free to ask about it further and I will post some more thoughts from me and any of our other speakers.
