"I want to equip and energize a new generation of biblical expositors"

We live in a day in which there is a famine in the land for the hearing of God's Word. In response to this spiritual drought, the ministries of OnePassion and Ligonier are devoted to calling those who stand in pulpits to the high standard of biblical preaching. If we are to see a new reformation in this day, there must first be a reformation of the pulpit. Only then can the church experience transcendent worship, authentic godliness, and true evangelism.

The goal of this event is to equip and energize a new generation of biblical expositors. This is a concentrated training opportunity to be instructed in biblical exposition and preaching. Pastors, bible teachers, and church leaders are all welcome to attend and be a part of this exciting event.  May the Lord use this to extend the proclamation of His Word!

-Dr. Steven Lawson  President & Founder, OnePassion Ministries


The truth of the sovereignty of God is one of the greatest doctrines that is so clearly taught throughout the Bible.  But how do we preach this transcendent reality?  And why do so many preachers avoid it?  In this Institute, we will consider many important preaching and pastoral aspects regarding presenting this truth in a way that will bring great glory to God.  This event is for men serving in or considering various church leadership and pastoral roles.
