One unique aspect of the conference this year was a series of “text talks” delivered by Oklahoma pastors and leaders. We asked each one to share with us “the speech of their life” on preaching. We asked them to imagine that they only have one chance to talk about preaching and then to bring that message to us.
In addition to that, we had a great lineup of other speakers: Dr. Steve Gaines (President of the Southern Baptist Convention), Dr. Steven Smith (formerly of Southwestern Seminary and pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas) and our own Dr. Anthony Jordan, Executive Director-Treasurer of the BGCO.
We were blessed to spend two days receiving instruction so that we might fulfill Paul’s admonition in 1 Timothy 4:15 to let our “progress be evident to all” regarding the exposition of Scripture and the delivery of Spirit-filled messages. Progress, not perfection, is all what the Lord seeks from us in our pulpit ministry. Let’s give that to Him as an offering worthy of His greatness and the calling He has placed on our lives.
