About 140 pastors, church leaders and guests gathered today in a lovely rustic lodge at the Squaw Creek State Park in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the Iowa-Midlands district conference. Pastor Gary Austin of the Cedar Rapids church was the host and emcee, and groups came from other churches across Iowa. The worship team from the Waterloo church led music, and short testimonies were given by missionary appointee Jim Momeyer, Chicago-area GBNAM missionary Clive Craigen, and a video from missionaries-in-training Kevin and Holly High was shown. FGBC Conference coordinator Tom Avey (center) and his wife Sandi brought greetings from the FGBC, and BMH Executive Director Terry White also spoke briefly. A special offering was taken to help the Longview, Texas, church. The conference next year will be hosted by the Dallas Center church.
