ANTIOCH, TN—Pastors and church leaders from across the nation will gather December 4-5 at Nashville Airport Marriott Hotel for the 2017 Free Will Baptist Leadership Conference. During the two-day conference, keynote speaker Clark Dickerson will explore the theme Leading With Integrity.
Through 40 years of fund-raising experience including more than three decades as a fund-raising consultant for Christian organizations, Clark Dickerson has provided counsel for hundreds of organizations. Clark holds an undergraduate degree from Wabash College, a Masters of Education from Indiana State University and a Ph.D. in higher education administration from Indiana University.
Clark founded Dickerson and Associates in 1985 and later merged with a friend and colleague to form Dickerson, Bakker, and Associates. As capital campaigns team leader for the company, he focuses more exclusively on assisting ministries, providing guidance to other consulting team members, and sharing his knowledge and experience through teaching, writing, and presenting.
“In a world where integrity is sadly lacking, it is important for leaders to be reminded of its value,” noted Executive Secretary Keith Burden. “The world is watching every move the Church makes. We can never place too much emphasis on the importance of integrity for those leading churches and ministry organizations.”
Additional keynote sessions will feature Will Beauchamp, pastor of First FWB Church, Seffner, Florida, and Gene Williams, pastor of Parkers Chapel FWB Church, Greenville, North Carolina. Special music will be provided by Welch College, including Rejoice! ensemble and The College Choir under the direction of Dr. James Stevens.
