God at Work through You
By Kathy Ross
All over the country, RTB chapter members—people just like you—are making an incredible difference.
In addition to impacting lives directly through meetings and outreaches, our chapters have also been used by God to open some major ministry doors for RTB. The latest example comes from 2015’s National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) in Charlotte.
This amazing story begins with the Charlotte chapter members, who kept knocking on NCCA’s tightly closed door until their gentle persistence produced a crack—the opportunity for RTB to have an exhibit booth at the conference. This crack has grown wider each year since 2009.
Last year’s event featured RTB as a gold sponsor, hosting a hospitality room and three booths. Both Hugh and Fuz were speakers at the conference, and Hugh was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Hats off to the Charlotte chapter, and thank you, Lord Jesus!
RTB’s Oklahoma, Chicago, San Antonio, and Seattle chapters have also created ministry breakthroughs. After years of being shut out of home educators conventions, our Norman, OK Chapter gained access to the Oklahoma Christian Home Educators Convention, where chapter officer Perry Santos actually saved a young child’s life! Now RTB participates in a growing number of similar events each year.
Two of RTB’s largest church events to date were facilitated by chapters. Our Chicago chapter laid the foundation for our Cosmic Fingerprints conference at Willow Creek Community Church in 2005, and members of our recently formed San Antonio chapter paved the way (with help from all the Texas chapters) for a Science and Faith Weekend at Community Bible Church, which drew nearly 15,000 participants.
RTB’s Journey toward Creation DVD owes its origin and development to our Seattle chapter. Just think of all the lives that resource has touched!
These stories represent just a few of the reasons all of us at RTB are thankful every day for the dedication of our chapter members.
