Voddie Baucham will be leading a men’s conference at Jackson’s First Baptist Church on April 19 and 20, and it is going to be really, really worth your time.

Warren Speed, men’s ministry chair, says, “We are very excited to have Voddie Baucham leading this year’s conference, Biblical Manhood: Equipping Men to be Men of Courage.  Voddie has walked a unique path that allows him to engage a broad audience. He is Pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, TX, and is author of six books.”

His area of expertise is “Cultural Apologetics,” but do not let that term scare you. Cultural Apologetics addresses the moral, philosophical, and cultural issues of the day from a Christian perspective. I really can’t think of anything more relevant a Christian man could do in this day and time than to understand and know how to combat the deteriorating world around us!

Voddie was raised in a non-Christian, single-parent home. He did not hear the gospel until he was in college. His journey to faith involved more than a little skepticism and a lot of intellectual analysis. He knows how to talk to other skeptics, and he knows how to take a Christian’s understanding of scripture to a whole new level.

He holds degrees from Houston Baptist University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, an honorary degree from Southern California Seminary, and has done additional post-graduate study at the University of Oxford, England.

He and his wife, Bridget, are the parents of eight children and enthusiastic homeschoolers.

The Friday night segment will go from 6 to 9 p.m. and a box dinner is provided. The Saturday segment runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased online at fbcj.org. Group tickets are available from Don Waller at 601.946.1290.
