A Man with a Heart for God


In March of 2005 Lions Gate Baptist Church began hosting an annual conference for men, The Men of the Word Conference. This year we had it fit in with our overall church theme of “a heart for God.” We host the conference at Camp Squeah’s facilities near Hope, BC. It has become a highlight of the year for our men and men from churches as far away as Prince George, BC. This year we had our largest attendance yet; 58 men representing 9 different churches:

  • Anchor Baptist Church ~ Burnaby, BC
  • Berean Baptist Church ~ Quesnel, BC
  • Greater Vancouver Baptist Church ~ Vancouver, BC
  • Metro Baptist Church ~ Burnaby, BC
  • New Testament Baptist Church ~ Abbotsford, BC
  • Okanagan Valley Baptist Church ~ Vernon, BC
  • Spruceland Baptist Church ~ Prince George, BC
  • Urban Community Baptist Church ~ Vancouver, BC

and , of course, Lions Gate Baptist Church ~ North Vancouver, BC

We were privileged to have Dr. Eldon Martens as our guest speaker. Dr. Martens is the author of, The Steps of a Good Man, a book that is printed by Striving Together Publications, a ministry of Lancaster Baptist Church. His teaching was on the responsibility of the husband to meet the needs of his wife, as well as some teaching on how to be a godly man. We also had lots of fun with a 3-on-3 basketball tourney and some time in the loft game room. The fellowship was good and the teaching challenging and helpful. Praise the Lord for a great conference!! Below are a few pictures taken during the conference.
