Shepherding 2019

I’m really excited about the 2019 SHEPHERDING conference being held February 28-March 2, 2019. Baptist Health and the Kentucky Baptist Convention continue our long-standing partnership to provide an event that will bring a time of Godly refreshment to pastors, chaplains, and Association Missionary Strategists. The conference is being held again this year at Lexington’s beautiful Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa in an effort to provide a relaxed setting as well as a relaxed pace. The hotel staff is among the best you will find in the business and we are grateful to be with them again.

As always, we anticipate a packed house again this year.  The lineup of presenters and worship leaders is outstanding.  Our featured speakers include:

  • Dr. Paul Strahan
  • Dr. Charles Lowery
  • Dr. Wes Fowler
  • Dr. Curtis Wood
  • Dr. Joe McKeever
  • Mrs. Nancy Hollingsworth (Women’s Speaker)
  • Bo Warren & Worship Team from Immanuel Baptist Church

In addition to these, we will hear from several other excellent presenters during our breakout sessions.  If you plan to attend, please register as soon as possible because we will reach full capacity.  You can register online today!  If you have any questions, please contact me (Steve Rice) at (502) 489-3571 or toll free in Kentucky at (866) 489-3571.
