Advance Conference

Home
Welcome to the Oklahoma Baptists Advance Conference! Prepare to be inspired and encouraged to carry the Gospel to friends and neighbors as you engage and listen to pastors and evangelists from Oklahoma and across the nation.

Our theme for the Advance Conference this year is Immerse.

  • Matt Roberson of Metropolitan Church in Houston will immerse us in worship of our Lord and Savior.
  • Fourteen keynote speakers will encourage you to immerse your community and church with the Gospel.
  • Five Oklahoma pastors will share testimonies of immersing their church with evangelism.
  • Twelve breakout sessions to help you contextualize what Gospel immersion might look like in your community.
  • Six lunch and dinners provide opportunities to network with friends and sharpen your vision.

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

The Apostle Paul
(Galatians 3:27)
