Sat Shout Out_bubble_red13690990_10209755301579630_8370246871777061027_oIt was a joy to speak this week at the Black Church Life and Family Conference at Ridgecrest. Grateful for this Lifeway event to train and equip African-American churches to make disciples.

Because of a scheduling mix-up, I was not able to attend the E.K. Bailey Preaching Conference for the first time in eight years. But I praise God for the good reports I have heard. And I am thankful for the ministry and example of Pastor Bryan Carter and the Concord Church. Mark your calendars for the 2017 E.K. Bailey Preaching Conference – July 10-13, 2017.

This past Sunday, I shared Prayer Targets for these Critical Times with the Shiloh Church. Join us in prayer for our nation.
