As part of Derick’s work with our church, he was able to attend the Southern Baptist Convention in Dallas, TX. We were all able to road trip as a family, then the boys and Jill hung out with friends most of the time while Derick was at the convention. We all enjoyed our trip and Derick had a wonderful time hearing from great leaders, connecting with fellow Christians, working at the Cross Church School of Ministry booth, and adding valuable resources his his ministry library.
