I am looking forward to the 2013 E.K. Bailey Preaching Conference in Dallas, July 8-11. This conference was the vision of the late, E.K. Bailey, founding pastor of the Concord Church. Dr. Bailey is the “godfather” of expository preaching among African Americans. Outside of Dr. A. Louis Patterson, Jr., I do not know of any Black pastor/preacher that has pointed more brothers toward Bible exposition than Dr. Bailey. The Bailey...
