DEL CITY—Acts 9:31(ESV) “So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.”

On Jan. 27-29 Oklahoma Baptists will gather for the “Multiply” State Evangelism Conference (SEC) at Del City, First Southern, 6400 S. Sooner Road. The three-day event begins at 5 p.m. with a Night of Prayer led by Elmer Towns from Liberty University. Towns is well known for his personal commitment and teaching on the role of prayer in Kingdom work.

Music for all three days will be led by Ricky Capps and his group Master’s Voice. This group has become a favorite of the conference attendees and is requested more than any other group SEC has had in past years.

Monday morning begins with a Senior Adult emphasis, but it will be enjoyed by all ages because Chonda Pierce will be speaking spiritual truth through humor during this session. Chonda has inspired and entertained Christian groups throughout the U.S. and overseas. Her homespun humor is used to bring a deeper spiritual truth to life. This session will conclude with a message from the new executive director-treasurer of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, Hance Dilbeck. He will bring a powerful message calling all Oklahoma Baptists to a deeper commitment to personal evangelism.

Four sessions follow the Monday morning session; there will be a Monday afternoon and evening session, followed by two additional sessions on Tuesday afternoon and evening. These sessions will be filled with the music from Master’s Voice and great preaching from men like Bill Britt, founder and president of Compel Outreach International; A.B. Vines, Sr., senior pastor of San Diego, Calif., New Seasons, a multi-campus church; Thomas Hammond, executive director of Georgia Baptist Convention; Kie Bowman, senior pastor of Austin, Texas, Hyde Park/Quarries; James Emery White, senior pastor of Charlotte, N.C., Mecklenburg Community, and Ed Newton, lead pastor of San Antonio, Texas, Community Bible. Each of these men will be challenging us to “Multiply” our faith through personal evangelism.

Monday evening service will have Elmer Towns preaching, and the Tuesday evening service will feature Ed Newton bringing a message. Every Oklahoma believer is invited to attend this free conference. All who attend will be encouraged, equipped and empowered with the Gospel. For more information, visit
