I went to a state conference last week. It was like hundreds of other conferences I've been to over the years. Speakers, breakouts sessions, vendor booths, etc. At this particular conference, there were only about 150-200 people, most of them over 65 years old. Nothing wrong with older folks because I'm one of them, but it seems that the majority of people who attend these things are retirees who have plenty of time to attend.
There seems to be a conference or two every week of the year. Apparently they make money or there wouldn't be so many of them. Besides the major league conferences, i.e., Desiring God, FBC Jacksonville, Together for the Gospel, etc., what is the value of these conferences to you? Are state conferences whuch are put on by our state conventions of any value? Just asking.
