Pastors, the Pulpit & the Moral Crisis of Our Time conference set for Montgomery in Aprilcomment (0)
March 31, 2011
The Christian church in America must take a stand in a nation that is experiencing moral and cultural decline and church leaders in Alabama can lead the way, said Joe Savage, director of the University of Mobile (UMobile) Center for Leadership.
Savage and a group of church, business and civic leaders invite pastors and church leaders of all denominations, as well as the general public, to a conference April 30 from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. at Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery. The conference, Pastors, the Pulpit & the Moral Crisis of Our Time: A Conference to Promote the Cultural and Spiritual Restoration of America, is co-sponsored by the UMobile Center for Leadership; its Twelve23 Movement, which calls for a spiritual transformation of America; and The Common Sense Campaign, a grass-roots movement to restore a constitutional republic.
“Our goal is to inform and inspire church leaders while encouraging them to lead their congregations to action that addresses the moral issues of our time,” Savage said.
The conference will provide practical information designed to empower congregations to become more engaged in the difficult issues facing society.
Keynote speaker will be Mark Foley, UMobile president and author of a new book, “It’s Time,” which argues that individual Christians must experience a personal revival in order for a national spiritual revival to occur that will transform America and, ultimately, the world.
Presenters will include Savage; John Killian, pastor of Maytown Baptist Church and first vice president of the Alabama Baptist State Convention; John Ed Mathison, retired senior minister of Frazer Memorial United Methodist Church in Montgomery; Kyle Searcy, senior pastor of Fresh Anointing House of Worship; and other pastors, constitutional scholars and civic leaders.
Worship will be led by IMPACT, a worship group from the UMobile Center for Performing Arts. Impact is directed by Pete Sanchez, author of the internationally recognized song “I Exalt Thee” and director of worship studies for Integrity Worship Institute.
