Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
Cutting It Straight Expository Preaching Conference exists to train, model, and promote expositional preaching. Expository preaching is that preaching in which the point of the sermon is rooted in, is in alignment with, and flows out of the selected scripture. It is preaching in which the sermon in shaped by the content and intent of the sermon text. In short, expositional preaching is biblical preaching
Expository preaching is not about the style of the sermon. It is about the convictions of the preacher. To believe the Bible is to preach the Bible. If the preacher’s sermon is not governed by the biblical message, it betrays a misunderstanding of the nature of scripture or lack of confidence in the sufficiency of scripture. Our churches need revival, reformation, and revitalization that only comes through faithful preaching.
Cutting It Straight seeks to help pastors who are “in the trenches” of weekly preparation and preaching. It is also for associate ministers, Sunday School teachers, Bible Study facilitators, and ministry leaders who desire to handle the word faithfully, clearly, and better. It also seeks to encourage pastors and church leaders to develop a biblical philosophy of ministry.
Cutting It Straight is three days of training, worship, and fellowship. Guest speakers will preach the word, teach principles of exposition, and lead breakouts to help you put principles into practice.
Register today for Cutting It Straight on September 17-19, 2019, at the Shiloh Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Invite your wife, associate leaders to you join you. There is something for everyone on your ministry team.
I hope to see you there!
