Amplify Conference Impacts Leaders

Amplify Conference Impacts Leaders

Recently, more than one hundred pastors, staff, and ministry leaders converged upon Lancaster, Ohio to attend the 2022 Amplify Preaching Conference. This year’s theme was “Preaching for Gospel Transformation.” Each plenary preaching and ministry breakout session was designed to encourage, energize, and equip church leaders to keep the gospel, and its proclamation and presentation, the focus of their preaching, teaching, and discipleship.

Dr. James Merritt, senior pastor, Cross Pointe Church, Dr. Ben Mandrell, president/CEO Lifeway Christian Resources, Dr. Daniel Dickard, lead pastor, Friendly Avenue Baptist Church, and Kirk Kirkland, pastor, Revive City Church, all brought biblical, relevant, and timely messages on the importance of preaching biblical truth to a culture that desperately needs to hear the gospel and know Jesus.

Breakout sessions covered topics such as how to take the gospel to the public schools and  how to tell the story of Jesus to a world that may be hostile towards Him or ignorant of Him. In addition, sessions included how to properly prepare sermons and how to professionally deliver those sermons.

According to one attendee, the Amplify Preaching Conference was a blessing. “It was so practical and such an encouragement to me. It was well worth my time and investment.”

A special thanks goes out to First Baptist Church for hosting, to all the volunteers for serving, and to the excellent worship team that made singing our praise to God enjoyable and heart felt! Keep your eye on a future edition of the Ohio Baptist Messenger for an invite to the 2023 event!
