Pastors’ Conf. seeks to build ‘lasting legacy’
    August 19 2013 by Liz Tablazon, BR Editorial Aide

    With the theme “A Lasting Legacy,” this year’s Pastors’ Conference aims to encourage pastors to influence others in ways that will endure past their own lifetimes. In a world where people seek immediate success, pastors are called to keep an eternal mindset.
    The conference will be held Nov. 10-11 at Lawndale Baptist Church in Greensboro. It will begin at 6 p.m. that Sunday and will end the following day at 3 p.m., leading up to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s (BSC) annual meeting.
    This year’s theme is based on 1 Corinthians 3:6; “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.”
    “What we’re doing in the churches in which we pastor, we’re trying to build up something … for the coming generation that will come behind us,” said Scott Faw, conference president. Faw is pastor of Moon’s Chapel Baptist Church in Siler City.
    Faw said he hopes the next generation will remember today’s pastors for having “preached the word of God” and having left “a legacy of truth and righteousness behind us.”
    “My expectation is to encourage pastors to leave a legacy, to preach, to really make a difference for the Kingdom in their respective areas of ministry, and for younger and older pastors and preachers to build something lasting,” he said.
    This year’s speakers include:
    • Lee Pigg, senior pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church, Monroe
    • Jeff LaBorg, east campus pastor of First Baptist Church, Indian Trail
    • Junior Hill, Southern Baptist evangelist
    • Mike Whitson, pastor of First Baptist Church, Indian Trail
    • Ken Trivette, president and director of Native American Baptist Missions
    • Herb Reavis, pastor of North Jacksonville Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Fla.
    • David Gallamore, pastor of Rock Springs Baptist Church, Easley, S.C.
    Mark Walker, associate pastor of music and worship at Lawndale Baptist Church, will lead the worship time.
    The conference is free to attend, and no registration is required. For more information, visit here.
