  • Overview

    Preaching With Precision & Power

    We live in a day in which there is a famine in the land for the hearing of God's Word. In response to this spiritual drought, the ministries of OnePassion and Ligonier are devoted to calling those who stand in pulpits to the high standard of biblical preaching. If we are to see a new reformation in this day, there must first be a reformation of the pulpit. Only then can the church experience transcendent worship, authentic godliness, and true evangelism.

    The goal of this event is to equip and energize a new generation of biblical expositors. This is a concentrated training opportunity to be instructed in biblical exposition and preaching. Pastors, bible teachers, and church leaders are all welcome to attend and be a part of this exciting event.  May the Lord use this to extend the proclamation of His Word!

    -Dr. Steven Lawson  President & Founder, OnePassion Ministries

    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.

    Immediately following The Institute for Expository Preaching, the Ridgecrest Convention Center will also be hosting the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches’ annual conference where Dr. Steven Lawson will be a main speaker.  This 3-day conference titled the “The Glory of Jesus Christ” will begin Thursday, October 25 and end Saturday, October 27.
