On March 6th, we will be gathering church leaders for teaching, fellowship, and prayer in Van Nuys California.

This meeting takes place the night before the start of John MacArthur’s "Shepherd’s Conference,” which is a very short drive down the street from the hotel meeting room.
On March 15th, we will be gathering church leaders for teaching, fellowship, and prayer in Montgomery Alabama.
The meeting will begin at 5:00 pm and will conclude at 9:00 pm.
Several church leaders including Scott Brown, Alexander Strauch, Jason Dohm, Jonathan Rodgers, Joe Dooley, and others will be delivering messages.
Also, “The Life of a Shepherd” conference begins the next morning at 9:00am with supper, in Montgomery where Alexander Strauch, Jason Dohm and Scott Brown will be speaking of Biblical eldership, and particularly some of the most important matters in the life of a shepherd in a church of Jesus Christ
In Titus 1:5, we learn that Titus was to “set in order the things that are lacking and appoint elders in every city.” By His perfect wisdom, God has laid out how the church is to be governed in His Word. It is such a blessing that God’s design for the leadership of His church has been revealed to us. We must ensure that our practices and doctrine today mirror with what Scripture dictates
As the shepherds go, so goes the church. One of the most dangerous things leaders can do is to appoint men who are not biblically qualified. Conversely, one of the most life-giving things leaders can do is to properly identify and present elders to the church for affirmation.
One of my hopes is that pastors in a region who embrace the sufficiency of Scripture will begin to know each other better and in turn, work together to advance the kingdom of Heaven in their communities.
To that end, the NCFIC would like to invite you to a luncheon for prayer, mutual encouragement, fellowship, and exhortation to be held on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, in Denver, Colorado.
In this course titled "Preaching With Precision & Power," Dr. Lawson will explore the mandate, meaning, marks, models, mechanics, and motivation of expository preaching. This event is designed for men who are serving in or considering various church leadership and pastoral roles. However, pastors' wives and those who teach in women's ministry occasionally attend.
There is no more worthy contemplation than Jesus Christ the Son of God. At this conference, we will be bringing in men who will explain from scripture, “The Glory of Jesus Christ.” This will be a most rewarding and blessed experience. Isaac Ambrose spoke beautifully of the value of beholding His glory:
“Christ is the whole of man's happiness, the sun to enlighten him the physician to heal him a wall of fire to defend him the friend to comfort him the pearl to enrich him the ark to support him the rock to sustain him under the heaviest pressures…”
