Of all the challenges I face as a pastor, at the top of the list is the challenge to unconditionally love people – all people. Yet the Bible tells us that loving people is the Heart of a Shepherd. It was the heart of our Great Shepherd and it’s to be our heart as well. This year’s Pastors’ Conference will focus on just that…loving people from the Heart of a Shepherd. You will hear from 16 pastors from across our state who will encourage and equip you in loving your people. Topics will include the foundation of a pastor’s love, the challenges of loving people, re-kindling your love for people, and building a culture of love in your church.
Every year I look forward to the Pastor’s Conference! It’s just a great time of fellowship, worship, and encouragement with other pastors across our state. I am praying that God will re-ignite our passion for loving people from the Heart of a Shepherd. I am looking forward to seeing you in Hot Springs on Monday!
