I am especially interested in hearing the recommendations and discussion concerning "The Great Commission Resurgence" vision set forth by Johnny Hunt. For more information on "The Great Commission Resurgence" go to

Of course, there will be a lot of other items of business, presentations, and resolutions to be presented as well.

However, what I am most looking forward to this year is spending time with my son.
