Biblical Preaching Takes Front and Center at Mid-America’s Adrian Rogers Preaching Conference
For more than 50 years, Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary has focused on equipping biblical preachers and leaders who are committed to the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture. That legacy has intertwined with the ministry of Dr. Adrian Rogers, long-time pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church, founder of Love Worth Finding Ministries, and faithful friend and champion of Mid-America, who referred to our school as “Scholarship on Fire.”
Capturing this spirit and honoring his legacy, the Adrian Rogers Preaching Conference is a Mid-America tradition in which impassioned, Christ-centered preaching is on glorious display. Held this year August 14–16, the Conference will be held in conjunction with our annual Founders’ Days, creating a three-day celebration you will not want to miss.
The Adrian Rogers Preaching Conference brings together a half dozen of the nation’s most notable preachers, including Dr. Michael Spradlin, President of Mid-America for more than 25 years.
Also, representing Mid-America’s faculty will be Dr. David L. Allen, Distinguished Professor of Practical Theology and Dean of the Adrian Rogers Center for Biblical Preaching. With an extensive background in preaching that included top-level teaching and leadership at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Allen is also founder of the new preaching ministry and website, preachingcoach.com.
Another “preacher’s preacher,” Dr. Steven Smith will also fill the pulpit during the Conference. Dr. Smith is also a professor and author and is the Lead Pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas.
Rounding out the noteworthy line-up will be Dr. Bartholomew Orr, Senior Pastor of Brown Missionary Baptist Church, Southhaven, Mississippi; Dr. Daniel Dickard, Senior Pastor of Shandon Baptist Church, Columbia, South Carolina; and Dr. H.B. Charles, Jr., Pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Florida.
The Adrian Rogers Preaching Conference includes three days of training and celebration and begins Monday, August 14, 12:00 noon, and runs through Wednesday, August 16, after lunch. The Conference includes breakout sessions and workshops, major giveaways, plus worship led by Jim Whitmire and Joshua McClain. The $40 cost includes meals. Registration is available online at mabts.edu/adrianrogers.

Though the Conference concludes after lunch on Wednesday, August 16, Founders’ Days continues on Thursday, August 17, 11:00 a.m., with a special message by Dr. Michael Spradlin.
The Conference will also highlight a revival of the Adrian Rogers Center for Biblical Preaching, for which Dr. Rogers was named a Distinguished Professor shortly before his death in 2005. The event also builds on the recent announcement by Mid-America that it is the recipient of two major collections of preaching resources: the 5,000-volume library of Dr. Adrian Rogers and the 25,000-volume library of Dr. David L. Allen.
This new development of acquiring 30,000 volumes for the Mid-America Preaching Libraries, the addition of new faculty such as Dr. David L. Allen, events such as the Adrian Rogers Preaching Conference, and our special preaching programs and degrees further cement Mid-America as a premier school for equipping the next generation of biblical preachers.
