Baptist and Reflector
ANDERSON, S.C. — This year’s National Conference on Preaching (NCP) will convene immediately after the Southern Baptist Convention adjourns June 16 in Nashville, making it convenient for pastors and church leaders to attend both events.
The annual preaching conference – offered annually since 1989 – will begin Wednesday, June 16, and run through noon on Friday, June 18. The theme of this year’s NCP is “Preaching in Troubled Times.” The conference will feature talks based on that theme, along with inspiring sermons and practical workshops on preaching-related topics.
The conference will feature an outstanding team of preachers and workshop leaders, including:
• Stephen Rummage, pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church, Oklahoma City;
• H.B. Charles, pastor of Shiloh Church, Jacksonville, Fla.;
• Ralph Douglas West, pastor of The Church Without Walls, Houston;
• Clint Pressley, pastor of Hickory Grove Baptist Church; Charlotte, N.C.;
• Dean Inserra, pastor of City Church, Tallahassee, Fla.;
• Charlie Dates, pastor of Progressive Baptist Church, Chicago;
• Mike Glenn, pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church, Brentwood;
• Dante Wright, pastor of Sweet Home Baptist Church, Round Rock, Texas.
The national preaching conference is sponsored by Preaching magazine and Clamp Divinity School of Anderson (S.C.) University.
“NCP each year attracts pastors from across the nation to focus on strengthening their proclamation of God’s Word,” explained Michael Duduit, founding editor of Preaching magazine and dean of Clamp Divinity School. Duduit also is a former executive vice president of Union University in Jackson.
“We are particularly excited this year that the timing and location of the conference will allow many pastors who are attending the SBC to stay over a couple of days and be able to enjoy this meaningful time of learning and encouragement.”
