Last week marked the 6th annual Unite Conference, hosted by the Pillar Network in joint partnership with Baptist21. While this conference addressed a wide variety of subject matters pertinent to pastors and church planters alike, the primary focus emphasized persevering in the ministry. The conference speakers provided numerous insights to help us run faithful races for the glory of Christ. We believe that much of the content from this conference will do your soul good. Therefore, over the coming weeks, we will post several videos and excerpts from Unite 2018. First up is Session I, delivered by Dr. Bill Curtis. Bill is the lead pastor of Cornerstone Baptist in Florence, SC, a congregation he helped plant. Along with his wife, Lyla, Bill has two daughters and has a passion for teaching homiletics at the seminary level.
