What advice and instruction did the Apostle Paul give to young Timothy, the new leader at the church of Ephesus? We will discover some of those lessons and how we can apply them today in this year’s Bible Conference. Come and soak in this rich teaching from some of our finest Bible teachers. Enjoy snacks throughout the day, and a box lunch in the middle! And it all happens right here in Fayetteville, NC!
Led by some of our CCBS faculty, each speaker will work through a specific portion of 1 Timothy, Paul’s letter to a young pastor. In this short epistle are powerful lessons on prayer, the importance of the Bible, leadership, and more. Whether you are a pastor, church leader, or just a student of the Word, you’ll be encouraged and equipped in this Bible Conference.
In the middle of the day, we will pause from exegetical teaching through 1 Timothy for a panel discussion on some of the issues found in 1 Timothy 3 & 5.
Listen in as these leaders explain how their churches and denominations approach these topics of leadership in the local church.

The Pastor as a Prayer Leader will be the topic. Focusing on the first several verses of 1 Timothy 2. Perhaps a synopsis might be as follows, “In these days of church growth seminars, small groups, gifted musicians and praise bands with impressive sound systems, and the rise of multi-site churches, what role, if any, does prayer play in the life of the pastor?”
WILLIAM WALLACE, PROFESSOR
Mr. William Wallace is alum of CCBS and now serves as an Adjunct Professor of Apologetics and Worldviews. Wallace serves as Associate Minister at New Life Bible Institute. He is alum of CCBS and holds a Master of Arts in Religion from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He is currently pursuing a second Masters (in Apologetics) from Southern Evangelical Seminary.
Readers of 1 Timothy will quickly realize two things. First, there were more than a few leadership challenges for Timothy in Ephesus. The church was struggling with many of the same unhealthy cultural and moral issues we struggle with today. Secondly, Paul knew the only way to improve the health of the Church and the community was with the leadership principles found in God’s word.
With that in mind we will use verses 6-16 to extract four Christian exercises that will improve your spiritual health.
