What 5 things can I do to best take advantage of a conference? – Do not go to see/get close to the celebrity preacher. Go to hear the Word preached. Granted not all conferences provide “preaching” narrowly defined. But all of them ought at least seek to provide wisdom from the Word of God. That is where the power is. Let us hope that the celebrity preacher became such because of his fidelity to the Word, because he has a gift to lift up Christ rather than himself. If so, look to Christ. – R.C. Sproul, Jr.
