GREENVILLE, S.C. (January 30, 2024) – Bob Jones University will hold its annual Bible Conference Feb. 13 – 16 in Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium. This year’s theme, “Look on the Fields: Cultivating a Heart for the Harvest,” is referenced throughout the Scriptures to remind Christians to develop a heart for evangelism.

“For this year’s Bible Conference, there is an emphasis on evangelism—the natural result of loving God and others,” said Dr. Alan Benson, BJU Acting CEO. “I invite all of our local pastors and their congregations to come and join us and take advantage of this incredible opportunity to be fed from God’s Word and be encouraged by wonderful fellowship.”

Benson will preach the opening service Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. Services will be held Wednesday through Friday at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily. On Thursday, there will be a drop-in reception for pastors and Christian workers in Rodeheaver Lobby after the 1:30 p.m. service. Services will be livestreamed and available via BJU’s webcast archives.

Conference speakers include Dr. Brent Belford, Virginia Beach Theological Seminary faculty and senior pastor of Colonial Baptist Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Dr. Jim Tillotson, president of Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary; Dr. Matt Morrell, president of Central Baptist Theological Seminary and senior pastor of Fourth Baptist Church; Dr. Billy Gotcher, faculty at BJU Seminary; and Dr. David Doran, president of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary and senior pastor of Inter-City Baptist Church in Allen Park, Michigan.

“Our speakers were chosen from sister institutions who share our biblical philosophy of ministry and passion for the gospel,” said Benson. “Each speaker is uniquely gifted to proclaim God’s Word, equipped to handle it accurately and committed to expositional preaching.”

The annual Bible Conference offering will support Dare for More (DFM), a ministry that helps rescue women and children facing crisis in Guatemala. DFM establishes safe houses and training centers and shares the hope of the gospel with its clients.

Student organizations at BJU are leading fundraising efforts on campus during Bible Conference. BJU aims to donate $150,000 to purchase a van and truck for DFM. These vehicles will transport clients to safe houses and carry resources and supplies to remote villages.
