At the end of January's Stephen Dare attended the First Baptist Church Pastor's Conference and live blogged the entire weekend long event...and, yes, the former Pastor for First Baptist Church, Jerry Vines attended.

Ok, Here in the main auditorium and Dr. Brunson, the Sr. Pastor of First Baptist Jacksonville, and also the hosting pastor. His presentation is mostly a welcome and getting acquainted kind of a speech so far, but when I walked in we were treated to a presentation from Mike Huckabee's show, so we may be in for a measure of politics at the conference.

Anyways, the conference itself is shockingly unrecognized by The City itself. There are no ambassadors from either DVI, the Visitors and Convention bureau or even the chamber of commerce despite the thousands of people associated with the event, its importance in national affairs, or even the combined wealth of the participants (evangelical pastors arent Catholic after all, so there arent any vows of poverty at play here)

This is a missed opportunity for the city I think...
