Preaching is not an advisory role based in religious expertise but a prophetic function whereby God speaks to his people. For this reason the Expositors Summit is designed to strengthen and instruct preachers and students for the glorious task of expository ministry. You're invited to join R. Albert Mohler Jr., John MacArthur and H.B. Charles Jr. for the explication of God's Word and gospel fellowship.
"When a man is apt in teaching the Scriptures there is a power to move men, to influence character, life, destiny, such as no printed page can ever possess."
Speakers: John MacArthur, R. Albert Mohler Jr., and H.B. Charles Jr.
Music: Norton Hall Band

R. ALBERT MOHLER JR.
R. Albert Mohler Jr. is the president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is an esteemed authority on contemporary issues and his writings have been published throughout the United States and Europe.
H.B. CHARLES JR.
Pastor H.B. Charles, Jr., is the pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fl. Pastor Charles is a contributing author to Power in the Pulpit and he speaks regularly at revivals, conferences and other church events around the country.
The Center for Christian Preaching is unapologetically committed to modeling and promoting expository preaching. That's because we believe that something happens when God's Word goes forth. When he spoke the universe into existence, it happened (Gen 1:3-26). When he speaks into the cold, dead hearts of sinners, a new creation appears (2 Cor 5:17). When preachers exposit the Word of God and announce that Jesus is the Christ, the church is built (Matt 16:16-18). Whenever God's Word is proclaimed, something comes into existence that wasn't there before.
