International speaker and author Sam Allberry will open Cedarville University’s fall semester by speaking at the university’s annual fall Bible conference. The event takes place August 20-23 in the Jeremiah Chapel and is open to the public.
During the three-day conference, Allberry will speak from the Book of Mark and will reintroduce the audience to Jesus: to his words, actions, death and resurrection.
“Many of us will have been Christians for years and become dulled to his message,” said Allberry. “Some of us may have even have picked up some distorted ideas about Jesus. But all of us need to hear his gospel afresh, and there is no better time than at the start of a new academic year.”
Allberry is a familiar face around campus as a chapel speaker the past two years and visiting professor during the 2017-2018 school year.
He works as an editor for The Gospel Coalition and a speaker and writer for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. He served as a pastor at St. Mary’s Church in Maidenhead, UK, for nearly 10 years and still preaches there regularly.
“There are few communicators today who apply the gospel with such clarity as Sam Allberry,” said Cedarville University president Dr. Thomas White. “Cedarville has been blessed to have him as a visiting professor, and I'm grateful to have him as a friend. Whether you're here on campus or watching online, you won't want to miss one minute of this year's Bible conference.”
