On March 22, the Empire State Fellowship sponsored its 23rd Shop Talk, hosted by Henrietta Regular Baptist Church in Rochester, New York.
Dr. Richard Van Heukelum, pastor of Walnut Ridge Baptist Church in Waterloo, Iowa, spoke on “Dealing with Long Legged Church Hoppers,” which concerned the issue of church discipline and how to handle newcomers at your church who may have been disciplined by a previous church.
Seventy people attended, mostly pastors. The Talk began at 8:30 a.m. and finished at 12:30 p.m., followed by a luncheon provided by Henrietta Regular Baptist.
The four-hour Shop Talks take place three times a year. Designed to help pastors, the sessions allow for plenty of interaction and fellowship.
