Dr Michael Haykin and I will also be presenting a lecture on the church as a family. For more information on the conference consult the TBS website (http://www.tbs.edu/).

Essential topic and excellent speakers. Thanks for posting this. It's going into my daytimer immediately, and a poster will go up here at Binbrook Baptist shortly.
