Tonight following our evening service, I am headed to the campus of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY for the “Power in the Pulpit” conference which being held tomorrow. This year’s conference will be taught by Southern Seminary’s own: Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. and Dr. Hershael W. York. They will be joined by Dr. Jim Shaddix, pastor of Riverside Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado and author of two books, Power in the Pulpit with Jerry Vines, and The Passion Driven Sermon.
I will be accompanied by three “young” preachers from our church. God has graciously gifted our small church with several “young” (some are older than I) preachers who are committed to a biblical theology and the task of expository preaching. I’m thankful to God for them! Please pray for us that we will each learn from the conference. I suspect my brothers may have just wanted me to go in order that I can get some help!
For those who would like to attend a conference like this but find yourself unable to do so, the audio from previous “Power in the Pulpit” conferences is available here. Previous speakers whose lectures are available online include Jerry Vines, Danny Akin, Robert Smith, Paige Patterson, and the late Stephen Olford.
