Pillar Pastoral Interviews - at the SBC

ATTENTION PILLAR PASTORS/STAFF:
We Need Your Help!

In order to the make the most of a good opportunity, we would like to interview AS MANY PILLAR CHURCH PASTORS/STAFF MEMBERS AS POSSIBLE, while in Dallas at the SBC ‘18. Please consider giving up about just 15 minutes of your time while in the Big D so that we can share with the world, what God is doing through your church. 

9780805497465_ChristCenteredExposition_LUKE_CVR.jpg

Any pastor who agrees to be interviewed with us in Dallas will receive the latest commentary in the Christ Centered Exposition series, Exalting Jesus In Luke, by Thabiti Anyabwile, as a small token for your service to our network.

To help with this process, we have reserved a room at the AC Hotel Marriott within walking distance of the convention center.  On Monday, June 11th, from 8:00AM until 9:30pm, our communications team will be ready to record you whenever you have time available.  We've setup an online form that allows you to reserve a time-slot.  Sign-up times will be in your current time zone, but we'll plan to run on Central Time in Dallas, meaning if you sign up for a 9:15am time slot, it'll actually be 8:15am in Dallas.

Reach out to Kevin Simmons for questions: kevin@thepillarnetwork.com   or  Call Kevin.
