“The Spirit and the Word” was the theme of the sixth annual National Conference on Preaching, held February 22-24 at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, CA.
Beautiful weather, warm fellowship and inspiring preaching characterized the latest installment of this annual series, which draws participants from throughout the U.S. and abroad, and includes ministers from more than a dozen denominations.
Plenary speakers explored the role and work of the Holy Spirit in the task of preaching. Workshop leaders offered practical counsel on a variety of preaching issues and topics. (A complete list of speakers and titles may be found on page 42.)
