Speakers & Topics

harry reeder
TOPIC: How God Can Revitalize Your Flock

HARRY REEDER is senior pastor of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, and also speaks daily on the radio program In Perspective. His four talks for the conference will draw on the message of his book From Embers to a Flame. Dr. Reeder says, "God's Word both by precept and narrative defines and delineates the biblical paradigm of church revitalization and the ten strategies to follow. The objective is never church growth. Church growth is the anticipated result."

TOPIC: Peer Pressure and Pastoring

ED WELCH is director of counseling and academic dean of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF), as well as counselor, faculty member, and the author of When People Are Big and God Is Small and a number of other titles. He will be speaking on how ministry leaders can best deal with and respond to the opinions of others and the pressure put on them.

harry reeder
TOPIC: Seven Elements of Successful Shepherding

TIM WITMER is founder of The Shepherds' Institute, an organization advancing the cause of shepherding among church leaders, and author of The Shepherd Leader. He will be speaking on the seven elements of successful shepherding. He says, "If you already have a shepherding ministry or are convinced that you need to start one, this seminar will help you preclude future problems or address current weaknesses."

harry reeder
TOPIC: Dealing with Angry Sheep

STEVE ESTES is pastor of Community Evangelical Free Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania, and coauthor with Joni Eareckson Tada of A Step Further and When God Weeps. "What to do," he asks, "when a verbal mugging in the hallway makes you fantasize about roasting the sheep on a spit?" In his talk on dealing with angry sheep, he encourages us to learn from "him who endured such opposition from sinful men" (Heb. 12:3).
