Robby Gallaty, senior pastor at Long Hollow Baptist, the host church of the conference, spoke on the importance of spiritual growth in men.
“God uses three things to grow every Christian: people, circumstances and spiritual disciplines,” Gallaty said. “The act of maintaining spiritual disciplines is the only one of these things we can control.”
Gallaty emphasized the role of the local church in pursuing spiritual disciplines by using the analogy of people pursuing physical training as part of a gym community.
“We need people to hold us accountable,” Gallaty said. “You will never get to the spiritual level of maturity God wants for you if you work at it alone.”
I was blessed to be able to speak at the event, and I am looking forward to hearing stories of life changing moments that come out of it. Read more about it here.
