Pastor's Conference Underway

The Pastor's Conference began this afternoon with the showing of "Fireproof" as mentioned in the previous post.

Then the preaching began at 6:30 with Dr. Johnny Hunt (shown at right), Pastor of FBC Woodstock, GA (who will also be nominated for Convention President on Tuesday). After Dr. Hunt, the crowd was treated to messages by Dr. Daniel Simmons of Albany, GA and Dr. Tom Eliff (above left) former Oklahoma Pastor, past Convention President, currently serving on the staff of the International Missions Board. We arrived in town too late to hear Hunt or Simmons, but Dr. Eliff blessed us and challenged us with his message from Hosea urging us to "break up our fallow ground." The theme for the evening session today was "Preparing Our Fields for an Outpouring - Prayer".

Tomorrow morning's session begins with the theme "Preparing our Hearts for An Awakening - Brokenness." The morning will include worship time, theme interpretation and messages from Dr. Alan Day; Dr. Hayes Wicker; Dr. George Harris; and Dr. Ed Litton.

Tuesday's afternoon session "Preparing Our Lives for Surrender - Revival" will also feature special music; theme interpretation, and speakers Dr. Jimmy Draper; Rev. Bill Stafford; Dr. Stuart Briscoe, and Dr. James McDonald.

The conference closes out with the theme on Monday evening being, "Preparing Our Churches for a Harvest - Evangelism" Speakers will be Doctors Charles Lowery; Kerry Shook, and Jay Strack. This looks to be a great time of preaching and refreshing for each of us.
Darrell Clark and Paul Harris are here for their first Convention and they seem to really be enjoying it so far.
