   Glory of the Lord at the Georgia Men's Advance!
 
Last month we held the 37th Annual Georgia Men's Advance where the Holy Spirit moved in His own special way. Hundreds were saved, filled with His Spirit, delivered from strongholds in their lives, and deepened their walk with the God of Glory.
 
Those of us who serve on the committee are always overjoyed every year at what God does, and it makes us realize the blessings of having a Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship in America function. This was the first year in thirty-seven that our founder Jimmy Rogers was not able to attend, but he was with us in Spirit.
 
We're excited to announce that we will be moving the Georgia Men's Advance from January to the warm weather of September. The next Advance will be the weekend of September 15-17, 2017. It's true that this will be two Advances this year, but we didn't want to go for a year and three quarters before the next one. We have had a great response to the move already, and the campgrounds along the lake will be beautiful in September. We invite men from across the country to join us.
 
I have always maintained that each of our FGBMFA chapter meetings should be like "Little Advances". I must confess that one of the things missing in both are proper and continual follow-up. I believe that the growth of the Fellowship has floundered over the years greatly due to this sorely missing function. I suggest that we recommit to working as a team and follow up with new attendees to make them feel welcome. This level of caring is something this narcissistic world is not offering on a personal basis, and I believe it will make the difference in the growth of our Fellowship.
 
There has never been a greater need for the ministry that FGBMFA can provide; a platform to exercise God's gifts in you. The battlefield is set in a war already won, but the battle is for those who don't know it! There is nothing that feels better than helping our brothers and sisters to the place of redemption, and God is always right there with His love. What a thrill to be a part of carrying out the vision He gave Demos. 
 
Thank you Father for this Fellowship, and allowing us to know You as we do. Hallelujah! 
 
In His Service,
Dick McBain
National Secretary
