A Conference for your Pastor

I wanted to take some space on this blog to make mention of what looks like a really interesting conference. The Expositors’ Conference (October 1-2) is hosted by Christ Fellowship Baptist Church (in Mobile, Alabama), the church pastored by Steve Lawson. The conference is targeted squarely at pastors, and especially those who value expository preaching and are attempting to learn how to do it or get better at it. There are only two speakers but they are among the foremost expositors in the world today: John MacArthur and Steve Lawson. I believe the conference is likely to be quite small and have a reasonably intimate feel to it.

Here is a list of the topics that will be covered:

  • The 10 How To’s of Expository Preaching (Steven Lawson)
  • Why I Am Committed To Expository Preaching, Part One (John MacArthur)
  • Why I Am Committed To Expository Preaching, Part Two (John MacArthur)
  • Questions & Answers (Steven Lawson & John MacArthur)
  • Digging Deeper Into The Biblical Text (Steven Lawson)
  • Proclaiming The Word With Passion And Power (Steven Lawson)

The fee is only $95 and that includes all of the meals. There are a limited number of families available to host attendees (for free, of course), so this conference may be a good option for those who are on a tight budget. It is also a great alternative to people who may not be able to go to next year’s Shepherds’ Conference.

  • Comparative Suffering

    Comparative Suffering

    It is something you tend to hear a lot when you have endured a time of significant sorrow or suffering: “I know it’s nothing compared to yours, but…” We have a natural tendency to compare—to compare our experiences to another person’s and to rank or rate them accordingly. The person who has suffered the loss…

    A Deadly Foe of Spiritual Growth

    As we live out the Christian life and cooperate with the Holy Spirit through the precious means of grace, we face a number of foes, a number of enemies that mean to derail us from our pursuit of God. Of all those enemies, none may be more prevalent and none more deadly than complacency.
