PASTORAL EVANGELISM AND LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
Date & Location: December 8-11, 2013. Oakwood University Church, 5500 Adventist Ave, Huntsville, AL 35896.
Description: PELC has become the largest continuous gathering of Seventh-day Adventist pastors and leaders in the world. Our theme this year is “Greater.” We want to leave the Evangelism Council prepared for the “greater works” as promised in John 14:12. This year’s team of worship, plenary and seminar speakers have passionate hearts for ministers. Indeed most of our presenters are themselves “frontline” pastors. As such, what they share has been field tested and fire branded! Every sermon, plenary, and seminar has been prepared, planned, and prayed over to have maximum positive impact on the life and leadership of every attendee.
Boot Camps: The three Boot Camps run from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. The cost to attend a Boot Camp is $10. They will run concurrently in three different buildings.
The Keys to Powerful Preaching Boot Camp: Explore the art and science of preparing and delivering dynamic sermons. Particular attention will be given to various sermon genres, the principles of sermon development, exploration of various preaching styles and preaching to the post-modern mind.
Presenter: Dr. Charles Wesley Knight, Senior Pastor, Mt. Olive Church.
Write Now! Boot Camp: A fast moving power-packed presentation designed to help effectively deliver the written word.
