SHERWOOD – “I preached at this conference for the first time in 1996. It must have been sufficient because this is the second time I’ve preached at the conference,” said Emil Turner to laughs and applause, a lighthearted start to a challenging message at the Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) 2013 State Conference on Evangelism and Church Growth.
The former ABSC executive director preached from Romans 5.
“I am preaching a message to evangelists, not an evangelistic message. Romans 5:8 says it all,” said Turner.
