Please mark Monday, May 18, 2015 on your calendar for the Conference on the Church for God’s Glory at First Baptist Church of Rockford, Illinois. The theme of this year’s conference is “Disciple-Making Disciples.” Our speakers are all men who have served as pastors, trained pastors, or both – David Doran, Ken Endean, Sam Horn, David Huffstutler, Joel Huffstutler, and David Saxon. Our speakers will also sit for a panel discussion on the topic of “Current Issues in Theological Education” as moderated by Kevin Bauder.
As Jesus said to His disciples long ago, so also He says to us as disciples today, “I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide” (John 15:16). The fruit of making disciples should be disciples who do the same. Please join us for a day of encouragement and edification, and if possible, please bring your staff members, deacons, and other church leaders. They will benefit from these sessions by hearing an excellent day of preaching directed towards leaders in the church.
As always, we will have our Publisher’s Bookroom with gift books for conference attendees and an array of books on display by various Christian publishers. Pastors will be able to go through the bookroom before 10:00 AM, and the bookroom is available to other conference attendees after the first session.
Ladies may join their husbands for free, but our publisher’s bookroom will be limited to attendees who have paid to attend the conference. (Please note that we do not provide a nursery or ladies’ sessions for the conference.)
Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Rockford, IL
