The Institute for Expository Preaching: Charlotte, NC
“Preaching with Precision and Power” 

  • Monday, Sep 6, 2021 1:00 PM - Wednesday, Sep 8, 2021 12:15 PM EDT

"Expository preaching begins with a return to the primacy, exclusivity, and authority of the Word of God."

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


This event is designed for men who are serving in or considering various church leadership and pastoral roles. However, pastors' wives and those who teach in women's ministry occasionally attend.

"I will never forget these two days, and will carry with me this time spent with Dr. Lawson.  I did not expect beforehand to have the opportunity to have such an intimate time with him, to peak into his brain and heart.  A most valuable experience that God will use in my ministry."

-Scott Ferrell  Pastor, Warrenton Bible Fellowship


"Thank you Dr. Lawson for your life investment in the Kingdom of God. I attended your conference in Olympia, WA this year and for the first time in my life, I understood what proper Bible teaching and preaching was. The time at your conference changed my life through looking properly at God's Word. I can't thank you enough for the impact you have had in my life and therefore the life of my family and my church. Praying for God's continued blessing on you, your family and God's ministry through you."

-Ted Thompson  Kendall Campus Pastor, North County Christ the King Church


"Thank you for pouring into & investing in the men who humbly desire to be faithful heralds for the Master, and to continue improving in the tremendous task of preaching God's Word!"

-Cory Keith  Pastor, Galeton Community Church
