Greeting from Pastors' Conference President & Officers:

WilliamRice
I hope you will join us this year for the SBC Pastors’ Conference in Ohio. The Pastors’ Conference is special. You can attend all kinds of leadership conferences. Some are inspirational and seek to inspire us, some are practical and seek to equip us, and some focus on the latest fad or trend in ministry. Most conferences come from a single vantage point or ministry philosophy.
The SBC Pastors’ Conference is unique. It is a time for leaders from across America to gather for the singular purpose of hearing God’s word preached from some of the most gifted preachers and leaders of our day. It crosses generational lines and stylistic lines and yet there is unity in our doctrinal commitments and our missional focus.

We have assembled a stellar lineup of leaders and speakers whom God is using and blessing. There will be passionate worship, great music, and inspiring stories. This will be the very time you need to refresh your soul and renew your walk with God and friendship with fellow leaders. I believe this is going to be a special convention and our Pastor’s Conference is going to set the stage for a true work of God.

Make your plans to join us this summer!
