2010 Expositors Conference

The 2010 Expositors Conference was one of the best yet. The theme was "The Glory of God in Preaching." It opened with a stirring message by Steven Lawson on the nature of the Biblical expositor. He spoke of the gift of preaching, the gravity of preaching, and the goal of preaching. This sermon set the stage for the rest of the conference. R.C. Sproul's messages were excellent as he preached on the "Holiness of God" and the "Wrath of God." The question and answer times with Sproul were edifying as he fielded questions on a variety of topics. It was encouraging to see this man who has suffered various health issues over the past few years continuing to press on, spending himself for the glory of Christ. Steven Lawson concluded the conference with a sermon on the "Immutability of God."
Of particular note was the graciousness of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church. So many of their members were present to give of themselves so that men from all over the country might be encouraged in their pastoral ministries. I'm sure many took two days off work to labor in this work. They went above and beyond to provide for each one in attendance.
I'm looking forward to next year's conference when the guest speaker will be Albert Mohler.
