Bob Jones University will hold its annual Bible Conference Feb. 13-16 in Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium. This year’s theme, “Look on the Fields: Cultivating a Heart for the Harvest,” is referenced throughout the Scriptures to remind Christians to develop a burden for evangelism.
“Evangelism—the natural result of loving God and others—flows out of a heart tuned to the Savior and His priorities,” said Dr. Alan Benson, BJU Acting CEO. “I invite local pastors and their congregations to attend and take advantage of this incredible opportunity to be fed from God’s Word and encouraged by wonderful fellowship.”
Benson will preach the opening service Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. Services will be held Wednesday through Friday at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily. On Thursday, there will be a drop-in reception for pastors and Christian workers in Rodeheaver Lobby after the 1:30 p.m. service. Services will be livestreamed and available via BJU’s webcast archives.
Conference speakers include Dr. Brent Belford, faculty at Virginia Beach Theological Seminary and senior pastor of Colonial Baptist Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Dr. Jim Tillotson, president of Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary; Dr. Matt Morrell, president of Central Baptist Theological Seminary and senior pastor of Fourth Baptist Church; Dr. Billy Gotcher, faculty at BJU Seminary; and Dr. David Doran, president of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary and senior pastor of Inter-City Baptist Church in Allen Park, Michigan.
“Our speakers were chosen from sister institutions who share our biblical philosophy of ministry and passion for the gospel,” said Benson. “Each speaker is uniquely gifted to proclaim God’s Word, equipped to handle it accurately and committed to expositional preaching.”
The annual Bible Conference offering will support Dare for More (DFM), a ministry that exists to rescue and support women impacted by trafficking, abuse and poverty in Guatemala.
Student organizations are hosting fundraising efforts to raise $150,000 for a van to transport women and their children to a safe house and a four-wheel-drive vehicle to reach impacted women in mountainous regions and deliver supplies to training centers teaching them a trade so they can get a fresh start supporting themselves.
