The Farmington Baptist Marriage and Parenting Conference begins Sunday at 10:45 a.m. and will continue at 6:30 p.m. nightly through Wednesday. The event is led by special guests Steve and Megan Scheibner and held at Farmington Baptist Church located at 84 County Road 106A.
“Marriage and Parenting Go Hand in Hand” is the theme of the conference which should help couples discover the power of renewal and put satisfaction back into their marriage and also help parents discover the transforming power of proactive parenting.
“We’re aiming at couples with children to help them grow in their marriage as well as their parenting skills. This can also be good for senior adults as they can learn how to mentor and be better examples to these younger couples, said Bryan Essary, Music Minister, Farmington Baptist Church.
The conference will begin Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. with Steve Scheibner’s testimony, “In My Seat.”
Beginning Sunday evening, the conference will be led by Scheibner and his wife nightly at 6:30 p.m., with special guest Chad Dickerson performing Monday night and Michaela Harper performing Tuesday night. The Farmington youth will be featured Wednesday night, said Essary.
Scheibner is currently a First Officer for American Airlines. He recently retired as Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church of Topsham, Maine, to become the President of Characterhealth Corporation; a non-profit conference ministry aimed at equipping parents to train the next generation of character-healthy leaders.
Essary said Scheibner’s testimony is compelling as he was the pilot originally scheduled for Flight 11 on Sept. 11, 2001, the first plane to hit the Twin Towers, and the events of his experience convey an important message.
