The Institute for Expository Preaching: Atlanta
‚ÄúPreaching the Psalms: Igniting Worship" 

  • Wednesday, Feb 15, 2017 1:00 PM - Friday, Feb 17, 2017 1:00 PM EST

"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


In this course titled "Preaching the Psalms: Igniting Worship," Dr. Lawson will train in preaching the unsearchable riches and the various types of the Psalms.  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.
