GREENVILLE, S.C.—Bob Jones University invited David Strope, interim national representative of the GARBC, to speak in its CoRE Conference Jan. 31–Feb. 1.
The CoRE Conference is designed to address contemporary ministry issues from a theological and Biblical perspective, with the goal to encourage and equip church leaders.
David led two workshop sessions on “Today’s Pauls Training Tomorrow’s Timothys.” He also participated in a speakers’ panel that addressed current pressures of ministry, such as societal resistance becoming more common.
On Feb. 2 Punxsutawney Phil made his appearance—as did David Strope, when he spoke in the chapel service of Bob Jones University. He spoke from Romans 12:1–2 on “God’s Will Is Good!”
On Feb. 9 David visited Appalachian Bible College. He spoke in the school’s chapel and taught a theology class for pastoral majors. Dan Anderson, president of Appalachian Bible College, is author of Biblical Slave Leadership, published by Regular Baptist Press.
David says these ministries gave him opportunities to connect with new ministry colleagues and to reconnect with established ones.
