He is also pastor of Brookside Baptist Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Sam and his wife, Beth, are regular speakers at couple’s conferences, family camps, and teen retreats across the country. Dr. Horn spoke during General Session 2. Below is a summary of his message.
The topic we are looking at this year is one of the most significant topics we could be looking at in this time in history. Pastors today are concerned that their young people are not interested in being part of the ministry that raised them once they go off to school. Many of these young people are looking for others to engage in certain conversations and to give responsible answers. Since their churches are not willing to have those conversations, they are being swayed by those who are willing to do so.
