Local Pastor Attends National Sword Of the Lord Conference On Revival and Soul Winning

For the 16th year in a row, the meeting was held at Gospel Light Baptist Church in Walkertown, N.C.

Brother Bobby Roberson, who has been at that church for over 51 years, is the host Pastor. The moderator is Dr Shelton Smith, President and Editor of the Sword of the Lord.

Several thousand people were in attendance throughout the week. There were two main preaching sessions daily, ladies seminars, children's meetings, and other workshops.

"You go from early in the morning until 11:00 P.M. or so, and it is just great to take part in everything you can," said Pastor Dale Forbes, of the Calvary Baptist Church of Buena Vista, one of the attendees.

This was the 73rd annual meeting for the Independent Baptist Crowd, and included folks from almost every State in the Union and 14 other Nations! "It's like a giant homecoming: each year you see old friends and make new ones," said Forbes.

The 2008 Conference is set for July 21st through the 25th.
