The Fall Preaching Convocation and Workshop with Dr. Joel Gregory, September 26-27, 2011

Dr. Joel Gregory, Truett's Professor of Preaching
This past week I visited with Joel Gregory. Some of the most memorable messages I've heard preached have come from his ministry. Four years ago I posted about a sermon I heard Joel deliver to prospective pastors. It is obvious to me that the tribulation and scars in Joel's life have only deepened his respect for the message of grace and the gospel rings even clearer from his powerful preaching.

In two weeks, beginning Monday night, September 26, and going through Tuesday afternoon, September 27, Dr. Joel Gregory will be the featured speaker at the Fall Preaching Convocation and Workshop at Truett Seminary in Waco, Texas. The cost is nominal ($30) and includes lunch on Tuesday. Online registration closes on Tuesday, September 20th.

Joel would like to reach out to folks who otherwise might not be here or know about the conference and let those unfamiliar with Truett know that the seminary is a place where the Bible is believed and the Lord Jesus Christ is exalted. Some of what Joel Gregory will deal with will be personal and autobiographical. All of it will be biblical. His message on Tuesday morning will be "Sometimes It Is Good Just To Get Out Alive" (Jeremiah 45) and will be worth your effort to hear.

You may click on the link above, or call the numbers below to register. My wife and I will be returning from Poland and the Czech Republic on that day, but I hope to be able to make the conference myself.
