I am down in Southern California with a couple of the assistant pastors from Fresh Life for a pastors conference called Preach the Word. The conference is based on the words Paul spoke to Timothy when he said, Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. –2 Timothy 4:2
The lineup for the conference is awesome, truly some of the greatest expositors and teachers in the country. I read their commentaries, listen to their podcasts and look up to them with great respect. There are over 1,200 people at the conference from all over the place who are here to get charged up before going back to their place of ministry to preach it up.
Tonight Greg Laurie spoke at the first session and gave an awesome message showing how in Acts 17 we can look to Paul’s message at Mars Hill and find principles on how to minister in a culturally relevant way without compromising our message today. Here is a fun little video of Greg recapping his message (and getting nostalgic about a toy from his youth) after he spoke.
