Quoting a hymn from his day, the apostle Paul said of Jesus that He was “proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world” (1 Timothy 3:16). The proclamation continues, and many from the world’s nations continue to believe. To strengthen us in our continued proclamation, the theme of this year’s conference is “The Theology and Practice of Evangelism.” Our speakers are all men who have served as pastors, trained pastors, or both – Kevin Bauder, Scott Aniol, Michael Riley, David Huffstutler, Mark Snoeberger, and Steve Pettit.
Please mark Monday, May 16, 2016 on your calendar for the Conference on the Church for God’s Glory at First Baptist Church of Rockford, Illinois. The day is geared to encourage and edify, and we hope you can 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
