DALLAS—This year's Southern Baptist Convention Pastors' Conference will center on the theme "Fulfill Your Ministry!" and exhort pastors and other ministers to finish strong in their callings.
Pastors' Conference President H.B. Charles said the diverse lineup of speakers—who are black, white and Hispanic—illustrate that "God uses different persons, different personalities and different backgrounds."
"My first concern was that these men I've invited are faithful preachers," Charles said, "and that these are men who represent what 2 Timothy 2:15 says: that they rightly handle the Word of Truth."
Below is a list of pertinent information on the Pastors' Conference followed by a schedule of speakers.
