Louisville—Baltimore, Charleston and Ferguson are three cities that have become synonymous with racial tension, but not all prejudice and injustices are so obvious.
For pastors, exactly what is the responsibility when it comes to holding communities together and people accountable?
Curtis Woods, associate executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, will discuss racial reconciliation during an instructional conference for pastors at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Oct. 26.
Woods will be one of four speakers at the Expositor’s Summit 2015 Pre-Conference: The Pulpit and Reconciliation.
Other featured guests include:
– Dan Hyun, lead and founding pastor of The Village Church in Baltimore.
– Juan Sanchez, preaching pastor of High Pointe Baptist Church, a multi-ethnic congregation in Austin, Texas.
– Jarvis Williams, associate professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Seminary.
The event precedes Southern Seminary’s Expositor’s Summit, a three-day intensive study designed to teach and equip preachers and students for expository ministry.
In addition to SBTS President Albert Mohler, speakers at the Oct. 27-29 summit include H.B. Charles Jr., pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla., and Derek Thomas, senior minister of Preaching and Teaching at First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, S.C.
