Another Encouraging National Preaching Summit
I just got back from my sixth National Preaching Summit. This year's speakers were three father and son "teams": Bob & Rusty Russell, Ken & Kyle Idleman and Jeff & Taylor Walling. It is held each March in Indianapolis and traditionally starts on a Monday at 1:00 p.m. and is over the next day around 11:30 a.m. Next year's Summit is scheduled for March 9-10. I highly encourage any preaching minister who wants to gain insight on the high calling of both preaching the Gospel and being a preacher. Here is the Summit's own description: The National Preaching Summit is designed for those who have the privilege of proclaiming the Gospel. The Summit is not a "church growth conference," nor a "practical ministries" seminar. Our objective is to offer a first-class conference for church leaders dealing with the preaching event in a positive way, at an affordable cost. We seek to celebrate the joy of preaching, while enabling those who are called to preach to hone their skills.
