This past Thursday and Friday was the Leadership Summit. Nearly 50 people from Grace Church attended this year and I believe it was the best summit yet. We all came away renewed and re-energized to the fact that the local church is the hope of the world and we can make a difference.
Each year at the summit, Bill Hybels announces the winner of the courageous leadership award. This is a $200,000 award given to one church that is making a difference in the HIV/AIDS epidemic in our world. As we sat at the satellite venue at LCBC, what a joy it was to have Bill Hybels announce that this year's courageous leadership award went to Pastor David Ashcraft and the Lancaster County Bible Church (LCBC).
On behalf of Grace Church, Lititz Christian School and Monringstar Daycare, I want to congratulate David and the LCBC family. May the Lord continue to bless your efforts to reach people for Jesus here in Lancaster County and around the world.
