SBC Pastors’ Conference 2017 schedule

PHOENIX (BP) — This year’s Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference will center on the theme “above every name” and focus on an exposition of Philippians by pastors of Southern Baptist churches with average attendance of approximately 500 or less.

Pastors’ Conference President Dave Miller’s advice to prospective attendees is to “read and look through the book of Philippians” in advance because the meeting “is all about the text” of Scripture.

Miller and his fellow officers — vice president Paul Smith, pastor of First Baptist Church in Chandler, Ariz., and treasurer Toby Frost, pastor of South Main Street Baptist Church in Greenwood, S.C. — hope pastors from congregations of all sizes will draw encouragement from one another at the conference.

Below is a list of pertinent information on the Pastors’ Conference followed by a schedule of speakers.
