What is theEmpire State Teen Convention?

 The Empire State Teen Convention is the fruit of a seed the Lord has planted and watered in the heart of Pastor Travis Smith and those at Buckley Road Baptist Church to encourage the next generation serve Him. The goal is to provide an old fashioned environment with exciting games, uplifting songs from the hymnal, and Christ-centered preaching. There will be no muddled noises over what is wrong and wrong, nor compromise where the Word of God is definitive. We think us Yankees can handle it. Obviously, since it is the EMPIRE STATE Teen Convention, it is a conference purpose built for those who call New York home. We will, however, gladly welcome visitors from anywhere, as long as they admit our pizza and coffee are better.     The theme this year:
