As a kid growing up in church we sang the lyrics, “Deep and wide, deep and wide, there’s a fountain flowing deep and wide.” Today, when I hear those words I think of the fountain of living water that’s called “Calvary Chapel.” This is our vision – to deepen the faith of God’s people through the consistent teaching of His Word, and to widen our outreach to new people who have yet to receive a compelling witness of Jesus. Here are the directions I hope to go in this New Year… deeper and wider!
And to encourage you in both directions – to take us all deeper, and help us look wider – we’ve planned this year’s Deep South pastors and church leaders conference. We have an outstanding line-up of good Bible teachers. We’ll also hear from other brothers laboring in the Deep South.
I know we all miss Pastor Chuck. This is the first year Calvary Chapel will be without him. That’s all the more reason we need to gather together and remind each other of the truths we’ve been taught! I hope you’ll prioritize this year’s conference for both you and the leaders of your church.
