Reflections on Our First Conference
In stark contrast to the outside temperature (-28 with -60 windchill) at Minneapolis, the Reception for Reformation Journals at the Bethlehem 2019 conference was ON FIRE! The Author Fred Wright and I were truly unprepared for the outpouring of interest that streamed at our booth every day. We honestly wondered if this time in history is really a good time to be presenting a product that REQUIRES reading, reflection AND journaling. While we are convinced, and have seen the impact on peoples lives here in our home town, there was some doubt in whether that would translate to a broad market. Well so much for THOSE doubts! Conference attendees were not only interested in the books we had available (We Fight, and Follow), but there was strong clamoring for more resources to be made available in leadership, youth, children, and music ministries as well! I will share more about our experience soon, but just needed to immediately give a hearty thanks and praise to the Bethlehem conference team, the Reformation Journals staff, the conference attendees, and of course our Lord and Savior (who is the Author of the bulk of our product in His Holy word)!
Reformation Journals appeared to clearly be a strong (most likely top) seller at the new offerings table where it was offered, and sales have been streaming in every day after our return! We can hardly wait to see the response from The Gospel Coalition conference in Indianapolis we will be attending in 2 short months.
