From Pastor John Hoppe

Dear Brothers in Christ,

On October 25-26, 2019 we will be hosting the 13th annual “DEEP SOUTH MEN’S CONFERENCE” and you are invited! The conference theme this year will be on being Salt and Light as men of God. We will be studying through selected texts that will teach us on evangelism and how we can more effectively be the witnesses that God has called us to be. We will be looking at some great scriptures that will hopefully equip us in this very important area of witnessing and evangelism. One of the distinctives of our movement as Calvary Chapel is from the very beginning there has been a passion to not only teach God's Word, but also to lead others who are lost to Christ.

I am really excited about the speakers we have for this year’s Deep South Men’s Conference. All of the speakers have been teaching God’s Word for decades in Calvary Chapels around the country and they have also had the privilege of leading many people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I think we will get some great tools from these guys that we can use in our personal evangelism with others. Terry Clark will also be with us to bless us with anointed worship and music. We will end the conference by having worship and communion outside in our new 600 seat outdoor amphitheater that also has a baptism pool. We will give guys the opportunity to receive Christ and be baptized during our last session as we are worshipping and celebrating communion together.

If you are a camper, please feel free to bring your RV, pop-up, or tent and camp out on the church property. We have 10 acres and electrical hook-ups will be available. If you are not a camper there is a list of hotels on the back of the brochure. The conference will start on Friday afternoon with registration at 4 pm with a free cookout during the registration. Our first session will be at 7 pm on Friday night and our last session will be over by 3:30 pm Saturday afternoon. We will also provide a continental breakfast and as usual, an awesome barbecue lunch on Saturday.

My prayer for this year’s conference is that as we come together in Jesus’ name that God will put a fire in our hearts to be men that are Salt and Light to a world that is lost and in darkness. Don’t miss this year’s DEEP SOUTH MEN’S CONFERENCE! It’s going to be a great one! Hope to see you on October 25-26.

Grace and Peace,
John Hoppe III, Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Lexington
