Mile High Preaching Conference 2013: This coming October 25-26, we will be having a Preaching Conference here in Denver. Why? After being out here for the last 15 months, I am recognizing this one fact: Denver and Colorado and the West need preachers of the Gospel—yes, even expositors of the Word! Trainings for pastors are prevalent east of the Mississippi and south of the Ohio River, but not so much in this part of our country. When I say that “we” are hosting this, God planted this in the minds of Mark Hallock (pastor of Calvary Church of Englewood, CO) and myself—and it came to light in the aisles of our local LifeWay Stores in Lone Tree.
So the theme is “Preaching that Engages, Preaching That Endures.” Our speaker will be Dr. Hershael York, Preaching Professor at theSouthern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY as well as Senior Pastor of Buck Run Baptist Church, Frankfort, KY. He is a gifted preacher and communicator, and has authored an incredibly helpful book, “Preaching With Bold Assurance: A Solid and Enduring Approach to Engaging Exposition.”For more information, contact either Matthew Perry (Pastor of Arapahoe Road Baptist Church) Mark Hallock (Pastor of Calvary Church in Englewood). The cost will be $10 and will be held at Arapahoe Road Baptist Church (but if we have more than 250 sign up, we will pick another venue).
With this, I would like to share with you a few other helpful blog posts for preachers:
