The 25th Annual E.K. Bailey Expository Preaching Conference, founded by the late Dr. E.K. Bailey, and hosted by Concord Church’s Senior Pastor, Bryan L. Carter, is a yearly gathering of preachers committed to growing their skills and practice of the exposition of Scripture.

During this four-day Conference, we provide tools, workshops, sessions and intensives designed to strengthen and grow you as a preacher, teacher and leader. Our roster of esteemed preachers and recent speakers has included, but is not limited to, the following: Jared Alcantara, Claude Alexander, Jr., Gaye Arbuckle, Lloyd C. Blue, Stephen Brown, D.A. Carson, Jerry Carter, K. Edward Copeland, Kimberly Credit, Charlie Dates, Michael Duduit, Conway Edwards, Joel Gregory, Freddie Haynes, Abraham Kuruvilla, Claybon Lea, Jr., Scott Lindsey, Jewel London, Nicole Martin, Eric Mason, William Dwight McKissic, Sr., Bruce Miller, James Noble, George Parks, Phillip Pointer, Frank Thomas, Melvin Wade, Todd Wagner, Matthew Watley, and Ralph Douglas West, F. Bruce Williams, Romell Williams and many more.

Our theme for 2020 is “Preaching The Psalms: Reaching the Heart of the People”. Psalms takes an individual on an adventure by way of wisdom liturature through sacred scripture. On one hand it proclaims praise and prayer toward God (Ps. 50:14), and on the other, it embraces human experience (Ps. 35:14).

We purpose to take you on a remarkable journey through the Psalms. At the conclusion of the E.K. Bailey Preaching Conference, you will have the tools, resources, and insights needed to rekindle your passion for preaching the Psalms.

This year’s featured speakers will begin being announced in early 2020.
