Family and Youth Conference

Family Life in the Household of God is the theme of an upcoming conference hosted by Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral August 1-4. We would be glad to welcome any of our friends in the area or who are able to make their way down to Cape Coral to join us for what promises to be a wonderful time together.

Special guests Voddie Baucham and Steve and Vicki Cook will be leading us during the conference. Voddie is one of the leading spokesmen in our day for recovering the biblical priorities of family life. His most recent book, Family Driven Faith, is a very clear call to return to these priorities. I expect that his teaching on this theme during the conference will be spiritual dynamite.

Steve and Vicki are two outstanding musicians who have written and composed songs that are being used in Bible believing churches around the world. Two of the best-known are “Before the Throne of God Above” and “I will glory in My Redeemer,” both of which we use and love at Grace. For more information, read the announcement at the GBC website.
