“Luke’s Account of the Passion Week” in Luke 19-24 will be closely examined during the Ouachita Baptist University Pastors’ Conference Sept. 27 in OBU’s Walker Conference Center.
As Ouachita marks its 15th year to host the Pastors’ Conference, Dr. Terry G. Carter, Dr. J. Scott Duvall and Dr. C. Marvin Pate, faculty members in Ouachita’s Pruet School of Christian Studies, will serve as conference leaders. Ministers and church leaders from throughout the state and region are invited to attend the annual one-day conference.
“Our goal is to provide pastors and other staff members with solid and current biblical scholarship, along with suggested methods for presenting the material at their home churches,” said Dr. Danny Hays, dean of OBU’s Pruet School. “Another important goal is good fellowship and the nurturing of friendships.” He estimates that this year’s Pastors’ Conference will draw 100 or more pastors, faculty and students to Ouachita for biblical learning and Christian fellowship.
The day will begin at 9 a.m. with registration and brunch. Ouachita President Rex Horne will welcome the attending pastors, faculty members and students at 9:30 a.m. followed by a brief time of worship led by Dr. Rob Hewell, director of OBU’s Worship Studies Program.
From 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Pruet School faculty members will host sessions to equip participants as they interpret and preach the gospel of Luke. Breaks and lunch will separate the four sessions. Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase faculty-authored books at discounted prices.
The registration fee is $50 per person, which includes a continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments. Visit tinyurl.com/obupconf2012 to register. For more information, contact Tracey Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org or (870) 245-5599.
