The E. K. Bailey Expository Preaching conference is a gathering of preachers committed to growing in your skills and practice of the exposition of Scripture. We provide tools, workshops, sessions and intensives designed to strengthen and grow you as a preacher, teacher and leader.
Our theme for this year is “Preaching 1 Corinthians: Engaging the Culture”. We will provide you with a core group of workshops that will teach you how to preach effectively through the book of first Corinthians. You will leave with a preaching plan to use at your church in your preaching or teaching ministry. Also, we will continue to offer an assortment of workshops to strengthen your preaching and your leadership.
Allow me to highlight a few returning and new features at our upcoming conference.
Opening Session begins on Monday at 7:00 p.m.
Last Session begins on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
For the past twenty years of our conference, we have honored a preacher who has made a lifetime of contributions to the preaching community. This year we are honoring, Dr. Joel Gregory known for shaping a generation of preachers internationally while serving as the professor of preaching at George W. Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University.
We are offering a variety of specialty mini-conferences. You will have the opportunity to hear best practices on the development and the delivery of preaching in todays culture.
