We had another great gathering in DesMoines with a 1026 in attendance at the LCMC Gathering. I have been attending the LCMC Gatherings for five years now since 2009. For those of you who were at Faith in 2009, pharm know that it was a very painful and challenging time for us as a church and for me as a pastor as we were being attack by our former church body. At that first gathering in Omaha, generic 2009, people would pray over Vicki and I at almost every meal. It was a very powerful and emotional time for us. Being covered in prayer is regular occurance at LCMC gatherings. At the close of the service every year since then when we sing Amazing Grace in the service, help I weep.
Here are a few pictures from the 2014 Gathering, in DesMoines, IA. Below is the convention center. Packaging meals from the Heartland.
We too met Pastor Jordan Long from South Sudan, many of its citizens have been displaced.
