January 29-February 1 Northland Baptist Bible College and Northland Camp held their annual Heart Conference with the theme, “Pursuing the Mind of Christ.” The theme was based on Philippians 2:5, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” The entire conference was a great blessing with keynote messages by: Dr. Matt Olson, president of Northland, Dr. Les Olilla, former president of Northland, Dr. Doug McLachlin from Northland and former pastor of Fourth Baptist Church of Plymouth, MN, Dr. Sam Horn from Northland and also pastor of Brookside Baptist Church in Brookfield, Dr. Daniel Davey from Virgina Beach, Dr. Dave Doran from Detriot, Evangelist Morris Gleiser and Missionary Phil Hunt from Zambia, Africa. In addition there were workshops during the day with a variety of men teaching those breakout sessions. Pastor Dave Smith from Ladysmith Baptist Church and individual member of the WFBC received the Honorary Pastor’s Award at the conference.
This annual conference provides an opportunity for pastors and laymen to get away for a few days during the winter doldrums and be fed and challenged by the Word of God. As always the food was great and the fellowship was sweet. The dates for next year’s Heart Conference are January 27-30, 2009.
