Main Sessions

Indian Pastors from across the country will preach biblically-rooted sermons to encourage participants to grow in their vision, passion, and diligence in preaching. Sessions will cover the scriptural and theological foundations of preaching, the importance and centrality of preaching, and will encourage pastors to grow as preachers who have no need to be ashamed because they are rightly handling the Word of God.

Breakout Sessions

Several Indian Pastors will lead sessions which cover topics relating to the nuts and bolts of preaching. Participants will be able to choose from among simultaneously run sessions and attend the sessions they are interested in. There is also an opportunity to ask questions and think together about the topic being covered.

Panel Discussion

Panellists, who are pastors of churches from across the country, will help the participants digest the content from the sessions by making clarifications, tackling difficult questions and fleshing out more implications. Panellists seek to draw on their personal experience as they offer biblically grounded answers. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions which would be beneficial for all. These often lead to stimulating conversations which continue over meals.

Music/Singing
In the times of singing, pastors will lead in worshipping God through song. The songs are selected carefully to ensure that they are biblically and theologically sound, as well as well-suited for congregational singing. It is a joy to hear the voices of participants from across the country join in singing praises to our Triune God.
Networking
The conference provides a unique opportunity to meet brothers in ministry from across the country. Along with meal times, the schedule makes room for time in which pastors can interact with one another and build friendships and partnerships. Over the last few years it has been encouraging to see several friendships and gospel partnerships blossoming as a result of relationships forged at the conference.

Free Books

Our sponsors, For The Truth, will be giving free books to each participant. These carefully-selected books are a means of blessing and encouraging pastors with excellent resources that will help them grow as preachers of the Word. We hope that these books will help pastors continue learning and also encourage their church members to read good Christian literature. Please ensure that you have enough empty space in your bags to take some books back with you!

Exclusive Bookstore

The conference will host an exclusive bookstore by sponsors For The Truth. A vast collection of books will be available for participants to purchase at special discounts. Pastors can use this opportunity to build their personal libraries and also buy books to help fellow-pastors and church members to grow in their ministry and discipleship.

Partner Stalls
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about how they can benefit from as well as partner with faithful ministries from across the country. Representatives from the ministries are available to provide information as well as guide participants in any way they need. The ministries include seminaries, and other ministries which are working to enrich churches in India.

Frequently Asked Question

No, all the accommodation for the conference is in rooms with 2-4 occupants, as it would be in a hotel. Click here to see images of the rooms.
