Spartanburg to Host Homeschooling Convention
SPARTANBURG, SC--- The Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) proudly announces that Spartanburg will be hosting the Teach Them Diligently Convention March 15-17, 2012. The convention will be held at the Spartanburg Expo & Event Center off I-26 at New Cut Road.
According to the event’s organizer, David Nunnery, this will be the first year the convention has been held. The Teach Them Diligently Convention came from a recognized need for more events celebrating the focus of Christian home school families. The convention will focus on missions, discipleship, and parenting, as well as the normal home school focus on teaching techniques and use of curriculum.
“Our company has an international platform and voice, and we chose Spartanburg for several reasons: a nice concentration of homeschooling families in the area, plus ideal weather in March, and also because Spartanburg has really opened their arms to our convention. Spartanburg has made it known that they want us here,” said Nunnery. He said they are expecting over 2,000 homeschooling families from all over the country to attend.
The convention will bring noted speakers such as Ken Ham of Answer in Genesis, Voddie Baucham, Jr., of Voddie Baucham Ministries, Doug Phillips of Vision Forum, Stephen Kendrick, writer and producer of such films as Fireproof, Facing the Giants, and Courageous, as well as notable legislative leaders on the local, state, and federal level.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to host this inaugural convention here in Spartanburg,” said Patricia Byrd, Sales Manager for the SCVB. “We expect more than 900 room nights from this convention, and we look forward to welcoming people from across the country to our community.”
