NC Pastors’ Conference to highlight statewide ministry leaders

July 19, 2021

A full slate of pastors and ministry leaders from across North Carolina will highlight the lineup of speakers for the 2021 N.C. Baptist Pastors’ Conference, scheduled for Nov. 7-8 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, N.C.

“A Place at the Table,” based on Matthew 9:37-38, is the theme for this year’s conference, which will focus on the life of the apostles and laborers in the harvest.

“Just as Jesus often called His closest disciples to dine with Him at the table, He calls each of us to join Him today,” said conference president Roger Barnes, pastor of Moores Creek Baptist Church in Currie, N.C. “We are to pray for laborers, we are to equip laborers and we are to be laborers in His harvest. At this year’s conference, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from North Carolina pastors and leaders who are laborers in His harvest.”

This year’s conference features speakers who are serving in a variety of ministry contexts from different geographic regions of the state. They include:

  • Michael Cloer, network missionary with the Cape Fear Network of Baptist Churches in Wilmington, N.C.
  • Andy Davis, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Durham, N.C.
  • Quintell Hill, lead pastor of Multiply Community Church in Monroe, N.C.
  • David Horton, president of Fruitland Baptist Bible College in Hendersonville, N.C.
  • Cameron McGill, lead pastor of The Lake Church in White Lake, N.C.
  • Eddie Powers, senior pastor of Sandy Ridge Baptist Church in Monroe, N.C.
  • J.D. Tew, senior pastor of Freedom Biker Church in Fayetteville, N.C.
