Over 600 Pastors attended a sold out event at the 12th Annual Pastors Appreciation Breakfast, sponsored by 880 AM WRFD on May 9th at the Hilton Columbus at Easton. This annual event gives pastors an occasion to be with other pastors and receive fresh insight and encouragement to help them continue their tireless service to their congregations.
Beforethe breakfast and program began the Pastors had the opportunity to visit over 40 exhibitors. The Heartland Bank team was on hand to meet and visit with many of the Pastors and express to them their appreciation for all the great work in the communities they serve and the inspiration they give to the youth. “For many years we have been a sponsor of the Pastors Appreciation Breakfast. We recognize many Pastors and friends that we have worked with over the years. Heartland has been very involved with the church community and helping with their financial needs,” stated G. Scott McComb, President and CEO.
A very inspirational message was given by the guest speaker, Chip Ingram – host of Living On The Edge, a weekly program broadcast to an audience of over 900,000. Chip Ingram’s passion is to help Christians really live like Christians. He is a pastor, author, coach and has been a teacher for more than twenty-five years.

At the conclusion of the program, the Pastors and attendees were entertained with the heartfelt and uplifting music provided by One Voice Gospel Choir from Cedarville University, a Christian college located in southwest, Ohio. It was a very moving presentation by these students. One Voice Gospel Choir is a passionate and expressive ministry for Cedarville students.
