Brewton-Parker College hosted more than 60 Southern Baptist pastors from the surrounding area at its annual January Bible Study Conference Oct. 31.
This conference teaches Southern Baptist pastors and church leaders how to lead the denomination’s upcoming January, or winter, Bible Study, which encourages a deeper understanding and continual study of the Bible among Baptist congregations.
The attending pastors learned different aspects of this year’s January Bible Study from the college’s Christianity professors and special guest speaker Dr. Fred Evers, senior pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Tifton. This year’s selected study is on the Letters of John.
Dr. Charles Strickland, executive assistant to the president for church relations, believes the annual conference was “a complete success”, not just in terms of number attending but in the new teaching style adopted by the conference leaders.
“Usually we’ll have one speaker to teach the entire lesson; however, this year we had a tag-team, broader teaching approach with each of our Christianity professors taking a different aspect of the study to focus on and Dr. Fred Evers taking the lead,” Dr. Strickland said.
Each attendee received a CD with PowerPoint lectures and sermon outlines. They also were guests at the college’s Chapel Service in Saliba Chapel and attended a luncheon with the college’s Ministerial Association students.
