The E4 Conference began with a vision to exemplify, encourage, equip and empower our pastors to preach expositional sermons.
The conference is really a partnership of Louisiana Baptists, First Pineville, Louisiana College, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. This will be our sixth conference. We are pleased to have Dr. Fred Lowery, pastor emeritus at First Bossier, as our keynote speaker.
Dozens of fellow pastors will gather at First Pineville for a day of listening to preaching and attending break-out sessions that are offered to help the busy pastor learn to develop timely messages. Breakout sessions will be led by professors from New Orleans and Southwestern Seminaries. It will be a great time of fellowship, learning and networking with other pastors.
New Opportunities- This year will also feature Logos Bible software with a special presentation, as well as discounts for those who attend. This software is a very useful tool in preparing sermons because it has commentaries, word studies, concordances, and various other references. Also, thanks to NAMB and friends of E4, there will be $5,000 worth of give-a-ways.
