CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa—Seventy-four men attended the first statewide Men’s Leadership Conference, hosted by Blair Ridge Baptist Church, Cedar Rapids, and Calvary Baptist Church, Mount Pleasant. Dr. Bob Smith from Faith Baptist Church, Lafayette, Ind., shared Biblical principles of leadership, imparting clear and practical wisdom from God’s Word concerning the discipline of body, mind, and activity. During the last session, Dr. Smith spoke on the sovereignty of our awesome God.
Dr. Smith has been associated with Faith Baptist and the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors for many years. He is a medical doctor, a speaker, and the author of The Christian Counselor’s Medical Desk Reference.
The conference provided an excellent time of fellowship and spiritual refreshment around Scripture. The men’s discipleship group of Blair Ridge Baptist will be reviewing their conference notebooks in April. Their plan is to hold one another accountable, to make certain all are applying the truths learned and to allow God to mold each into the kind of man and leader He desires.
