Daniel Dickard guest on latest ‘Road to New Orleans’ video

By BP Staff

NEW ORLEANS (BP) – Daniel Dickard, president of the 2023 SBC Pastors’ Conference, joined SBC Executive Committee Vice President for Communications Jonathan Howe to preview this year’s conference.

In the latest installment of “Road to New Orleans,” a video series hosted by Howe to prepare and inform Southern Baptists leading up to the 2023 SBC Annual Meeting in that city, Dickard discusses his reasons for selecting “The Character of a Pastor” for the theme of the 2023 Pastors’ Conference

“Ministry is not about us,” Dickard said. “Ministry is about the life of Jesus lived in and through us. It’s not our job to build our own ministry, but rather build others through our ministry.”

In the video, Dickard said his first objective is for pastors to be encouraged.

“This two-day event allows pastors across the Convention to come together and to sit under biblical preaching and have their souls nourished in the Word of God,” he said.

The two also discuss many of the men scheduled to preach at the conference. That list includes David Allen, H.B. Charles, Andrew Hebert, Jimmy Draper, Ken Whitten and many others.

The conference is scheduled for June 11-12 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, and will be followed June 13-14 by the SBC Annual Meeting in the same location.
