This Sunday at EBC

I really love to preach the Bible. It is one of the great privileges of my life. Sometimes people will kindly reference the impact that my teaching has had on their walk with Christ. That's always an encouragement.

This Sunday morning I am going to be preaching about 3 reasons we ought to all study our Bibles. My desire as a pastor/teacher is for my long-term members to be self-feeding, self-sustaining, mature believers who can study the Bible for themselves.

Sunday morning in our 9a and 10:30a worship services I will show you 3 reasons you ought to study the Bible for yourself. I hope to see all my EBC friends and family there.

Dr. Jerry Vines to preach at Emmanuel Baptist

On Sunday, February 28th I have the joy of sharing the pulpit with one of my heroes, Dr. Jerry Vines. Dr. Vines is the pastor emeritus of First Baptist Church in Jacksonville and a former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. There are few preachers in the world for whom I have greater respect than Dr. Vines. We will be privileged to hear him at 9a, 10:30a, and 6p.

2010 State Evangelism Conference

On Tuesday, March 2 I will be preaching at the annual state evangelism conference of the Georgia Baptist Convention. I will share the afternoon session along with my dear friend Dr. Gerald Harris, editor of The Christian Index, our state Baptist paper. My scheduled time to preach is about 3:15p-3:55p although I would encourage my friend in SE Georgia to make as much of the 2010 SEC as possible.

For you folks across Georgia who listen to our messages online, I would count it a great privilege to meet you personally.
