Hello friends! Wow–what a conference! With keynote sessions from Doug Phillips and RC Sproul Jr, it was sure to be a blessing to the saints. Additional speakers included Kevin Swanson, Norm Wakefield, and Rick/Marilyn Boyer among many others. With a new Used Curriculum Sale complimenting the already packed Vendor Hall, there was no lack of curriculum, that is for sure! We tried something new this year by having a free Christian family film night on Friday night and over 1000 people attended! Many of those same filmmakers were on a panel discussion on Sat to discuss the issues associated with getting into Christian filmmaking. Many had an opportunity to sign up for the silent auction and golf tournament (15 July in Elizabeth), but there is still time!
As you may know, the battle lines are being drawn sharper…either you stand on the Word of God or you do not. CHEC stands on the Word of God. We have expanded the conference theme to families and not just homeschoolers and to the Rocky Mountains because we draw folks from more than a dozen states. Times like these require vision and CHEC continues to provide that vision, by God’s grace. Usually, if someone says we are too narrow, they really mean we need to compromise. Well, here is some feedback showing that we are hitting the mark!
“We attended our third CHEC conference this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting on such a wonderful event! Thank you for providing teachers and vendors that uphold God’s Word without compromise. We were so blessed. People keep asking what our favorite part was and it is a hard quesiton to answer. We were encouraged in so many areas. It was ALL so good!!! Keep up the great work!” D.W.
“Our family enjoyed the conference immensely. We especially loved that it was called a ‘Family Conference’. We believe this will help us to invite friends in the future who don’t educate their children at home, but need some great encouragement for their family and how to live life with joy.” Kim
“We really enjoyed the conference as well. Thank you CHEC!” D.W.
“We did too! It was so encouraging to see so many people there! We left motivated and inspired. :O)” L.O.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike and Roxie Cheney, our conference coordinators. Not only do they do this well, they do it with grace and love and peace. Also, thank you to the Conference Committee who pour in countless hours of volunteering to make this happen. By God’s grace, we are holding the line against the rising tide of those who hate Christ or want to compromise His Word with the world. Be encouraged, for the Lord fights for you.
Soli Deo Gloria, Sola Fide, Sola Christo, Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia!
