Southern Baptist Theological Seminary just wrapped up its 2014 Expositors Summit. Ahead of the event, a pre-conference focusing on expository preaching in the African-American church was held in partnership with the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

According to the event description: the African-American church has a rich history of faithful preaching from God’s Word. This tradition has seen preachers bring the Word to life in ways that are life-changing for their listeners, in ways that connect God’s story with their story. The “Tell Your Story” pre-conference event will focus on that process, the process of getting the text right and getting the text across. How can expositors preach biblically faithful sermons that meaningfully connect within the African-American context?

Pastors Thabiti Anyabwile, H.B. Charles, Jr., Victor Sholar, and Kevin Smith provided instruction and encouragement on this topic. Three sessions were followed by a panel discussion.

As part of the event, John M. Perkins spoke on the topic of “Theology and Race in American Christianity” during the John B. Gay Lecture.
