The first annual Christian Unity Conference is this weekend, starting Friday evening at 6:30 pm and continuing through Sunday at noon. If you are a christian, ride a motorcycle, or are just interested in hearing some good preaches, speakers and music, come on out.
The festivities start Friday evening with worship and a message from Ron Baptiste with Covenant Confirmers. Here is a quote from his web site;
“PASTOR RON’S UNIQUE TESTIMONY BEGINS WITH HIS CONVERSION TO JESUS CHRIST THROUGH “PRISON MINISTRY” IN 1970. RON HAD A VERY VIOLENT NATURE WHICH CAUSED HIS INCARCERATION, ADDICTED TO DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND VIOLENCE, BUT WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT TO KILL HIM WITH, GOD HAS TURNED TO HIS GOOD!”
On Saturday the conference gets into full swing with donuts and coffee at 9:30am, worship at 10am, and Ron speaking at 11am.
The afternoon session begins at 3pm with reports and encouragement from COC&I State Chairman Bandido “Gimmi” Jimmy, and Escondido Paul from US Defenders. Worship begins at 3:30pm and Rick Dubose will speak at 4pm. Rick is the North Texas District Superintendent with the Assemblies of God. Here is a quote from the NTD web site;
“Pastor Rick DuBose was elected as North Texas District Superintendent in 2007. Before being elected as our Superintendent he was Assistant Superintendent from 2005 to 2007. Pastor Rick pastored Sachse Assembly of God, now North Place Church, from 1987-2005. While pastor at Sachse the church grew from 17 people to in excess of 800. He also pastored at Hallsville Assembly of God, Hallsville, TX. During his pastorate in Sachse he was honored by Sachse Chamber of Commerce “Man of the Year” in 2001.

Saturday evening we will be blessed with a concert featuring Southern Glory beginning at 7pm, so you will want to get there early to get a seat. Southern Glory describes themselves as a Christian Southern Rock band. Here is a clip from their their web site;
“Southern Glory is NOTHING without God! And……..we will OWN your stage with authentic, southern-fried rock and roll with some Texas blues thrown in just because we can………….just sayin………….”
