ROGERS – Sacred Investment is the theme of the 2013 Arkansas Pastors’ Conference set for 10 a.m., Monday, Oct. 28 at Cross Church, Pinnacle Hills, in Rogers.
Danny Smith, pastor of CrossPoint Baptist Church, Greenbrier, is serving as president of the 2013 Pastors’ Conference. Other members of the leadership team are David Fox, pastor of First Baptist Church, Mayflower, vice president, and Chad Grigsby, directional pastor of teaching and shepherding at the Compass Church, Batesville, treasurer.
“This year’s event will feature dynamic speakers from churches and ministries all over the United States,” said Smith.
2013 Pastors’ Conference speakers are Nick Floyd, pastor of Cross Church, Fayetteville; Josh Reavis, assistant pastor of pastoral ministries at North Jacksonville Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Fla.; Larry White, associational missionary for Faulkner Baptist Association, Conway; Kenny Luck, pastor of men at Saddleback Church and founder of Every Man Ministries, Lake Forest, Calif., and Mark Dever, pastor of Capital Hills Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
Smith said a new addition this year is an afternoon panel discussion featuring conference speakers.
“This panel discussion will allow you to hear the hearts of the men and how they are investing in the lives of others,” he said.
Smith said the Sacred Investment theme is based on 2 Timothy 2:1-2.
“As pastors, we spend so much time investing our lives into others for the sake of the gospel, and this day will be an encouragement to continue to ‘entrust to faithful men’ the glorious riches of Jesus Christ,” he explained, referencing 2 Timothy 2:2.
“Our team of leaders have been, and will continue to be, praying for this day to be an encounter with God that strengthens and encourages the pastors of our state,” said Smith.
“We hope you will make plans now to attend, and together let’s continue the task of reaching more people for King Jesus!”
