The 2019 IBSA Pastors’ Conference kicks off Tuesday, Nov. 5, at Cornerstone Church in Marion. The meeting’s theme of revival and renewal will be explored in six sermons and multiple breakout sessions led by local and national leaders.
Psalm 143:11 will set the stage for the Pastors’ Conference: “For your name’s sake, Lord, let me live. In your righteousness deliver me from trouble” (CSB).
Six different preachers will speak on the part of a leader’s life in need of revival: love for the church, focus on discipleship, power of the pulpit, passion for ministry, the broken-hearted, and the church in the current culture. The team from Cornerstone Church will lead in worship throughout the conference.
The meeting will also include two opportunities for breakout sessions on topics including a leader’s care for his family, how to avoid ministry burnout, and setting up safeguards against moral failure.
The Pastors’ Conference begins at 1 p.m. Tuesday and concludes its first day at 8:45. Wednesday’s session begins at 8:30 a.m. This year’s conference is led by officers elected at last year’s meeting: Ben Towell, First Baptist Church, Morton, president; Rayden Hollis, Red Hill Church, Edwardsville, vice president; and David Seaton, Collinsville Community Church, treasurer.
