Are Miracles Possible?

Evangelism and Sunday Worship - How They Work Together
Charles Billingsley | Worship Leader
It is the Holy Spirit who changes lives and saves souls. In this session, Charles Billingsley will dive into several practical ways in which we can design worship services to make them more conducive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Can We Talk
John Meador | Senior Pastor, FBC Euless
“Can We Talk?” is a 6-week emphasis that allows pastors to equip church members in how to share the Gospel conversationally. Begun in 2013 by Pastor John Meador as a way to train those in his church to share the Gospel in their everyday conversations, “Can We Talk?” became the equipping tool of the church he pastors in Euless, Texas. More than 600 people were trained to effectively share the Gospel in two years. It became evident that other churches needed this tool, and with the support of his church, Pastor Meador launched One Conversation, Inc. This organization now trains pastors and leaders through conferences designed to prepare them to successfully equip congregations to share their faith in a life-changing way.
Seeking God's Face and Seeking God Work
Mark Becton | Senior Pastor, Grove Avenue Baptist Church, Richmond, Virginia
Weaves biblical truths with inspiring historical and current accounts of God’s activity. It reminds that we are merely responsible for faithfulness. God is the one who produces the fruit…His way, in His timing, for His glory. It’s for the pastor drained being faithful without seeing fruit, for the layman weary praying for revival with no signs of turning. It’s a fresh reminder, when we seek God’s face we see His fruit.
Rodney Keith | Senior Pastor, Gardenview Baptist Church, Florida
James Walker | President, Watchman Fellowship
