The 2014 Southern Baptist Pastors’ Conference, June 8-9, will be held in Baltimore, at the Baltimore Convention Center right on Inner Harbor.
Notable speakers include Francis Chan, Tony Evans, Ronnie Floyd, J.D. Greear, Johnny Hunt, Clayton King, James MacDonald, Eric Mason, David Platt and Rick Warren.
“What Moses was begging for [was] a manifestation of God’s presence,” said Bruce Frank, lead pastor of Biltmore Baptist Church in Asheville and 2014 Pastor’s Conference president, about the conference theme “Show Us Your Glory” based on Exodus 33:18-23.
“Whether that be saving a marriage, [breaking from] addiction, reviving a pastor who may be burned out. Man can’t do those things. God can.”
Frank said the theme follows along with his personal journey over the last few years of learning to tilt things vertically toward God.
Many churches are doing things that are “pragmatically cool but [do] not glorify God,” Frank said.
Clint Pressley, senior pastor of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte, serves as an officer of the Pastors’ Conference. He will be nominated for the office of first vice-president of the Southern Baptist Convention in Baltimore, June 10-11.
