ACE - Accelerated Christian Education Teachers Conference
This past week Samantha and I as well as several others from our Church were able to attend the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) Teacher Conference.
We all stayed at the hotel that the conference was being held. This hotel was really nice! Last year we stayed at a hotel that was pretty nice but it was further away. Being able to stay at the same place as the conference was nice because we didn't have to rush. We were also able to go to our room during the breaks and check out at 1pm after lunch.
This was Samantha's first time to attend the conference, and my third. Each year I have gone it has been very informative and extremely fun. For Samantha this being her first conference she really had a great time.
We both really like Mrs Sandy Dawson, she has such a robust style of teaching and is not afraid to go against the grain. She has such a passion for what she is teaching and Samantha and I both really appreciate that.
Pretty much every session we attended were great. This years theme was Running the Race. There was three preaching messages, The First was on Running the Race, and the second was on, Being A Team and the third was on, Passing the Baton.
During one of the general sessions, I was called up to help with an illustration, as well as 11 other men. It was a lot of fun.
Three years in a row, I have been blessed to attend this conference, but this year was special because it was the first year I was able to attend married to my wonderful wife Samantha. Her presence, as it always does really makes it extra special.
