This past Saturday I had the joy of speaking at the Church Equipping Conference for the Michigan Baptism Convention. I spoke on reaching the next gen and on learning to share Jesus without freaking out about it. Our president at SEBTS Danny Akin brought keynote addresses superbly as always. I thoroughly enjoyed being with him and seeing old and new friends. God called me to equip leaders to advance the gospel, so anytime I get to do this is pure joy.
In 2017, I will be speaking at a variety of these conferences. If you are in any of these locations, please join us, and please stop by and say howdy. These are only a percentage of the many such conferences happening across our land. I mention these because 1) they are the ones I will be at so I know them best, 2) I really do love seeing friends and former students at these, 3) I believe these will be helpful to you. Here they are:
January 13-14 Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia Youth Evangelism Conference. London Bridge Baptist Church, Virginia Beach, VA. More info here.
February 23-25 Missouri Baptist Convention Great Commission Conference (speaking the 23d). Springfield, MO. More info here.

I’m also speaking at a professional development retreat for Georgia Baptists in April, and to a number of churches and universities in various states related to the release of my Sharing Jesus book in the spring. One of these, at First Baptist, Rogers, Arkansas, will be opened up for other churches across the state I’m told. More info to come on that one. If you are in any of these areas and can join us, please do!
If you live in or near Missouri I will be speaking at both Super Summer camps this June. I’m excited to be back with all my friends these weeks. I have such great memories from past camps. See more here about Super Summer Missouri!
