Equipped for Excellence 2010


On Saturday, April 17, the Inland Empire Southern Baptist Association will be hosting their annual Equipped for Excellence conference. This is one of the best discipleship conferences in the country for Sunday School and Small Group training.

This year, I have the privilege of teaching a seminar entitled, "How to Study and Interpret the Bible." In four and a half hours, you'll get a crash course in biblical interpretation (hermeneutics) and even get to practice in class what you are learning. The class is designed to help people of all levels, whether you are just doing personal devotional reading or preparing an in-depth Bible Study.

This is just one of many other options. Full conference details are below. Be sure to register by next Monday, April 5, to get your early bird discount!


When: April 17, 2010 – 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Where: Magnolia Avenue Baptist Church and California Baptist University in Riverside , California (map). (Carpooling will be available from First Southern Yucca Valley)

Cost: $40 per person if your registration is postmarked by April 5th. $45 per person if form is postmarked after April 5th. The registration fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch on site by IN-N-OUT BURGER, and five hours of quality Sunday School instruction! Please note that conferees can also have lunch at the Alumni Dining Commons at CBU!

Keynote Speaker: Pastor Calvin R. Wittman of Applewood Baptist Church in Wheat Ridge , Colorado
