A general conference memory

The first general conference Of the United Pentecostal Church I remember attending was held at the Ellis Auditorium in Little Rock, Arkansas, circa 1955. My father, Glen Segraves, was pastoring in Rector, Arkansas. He sang at this conference, playing his little red accordion. His song was “This Old House,” written by Stuart Hamblin. This was “by request,” as they did in those days. I was about 9 years old. Compare that to today’s general conference music! Will there be an accordion?

Getting ready for the 2018 general conference in Louisville, Kentucky, from the 17th floor of the downtown Marriott. I’m not 9 anymore.
