Founders Baptist Church
The 2018 Spurgeon Conference will take place on November 2-4 at Founders Baptist Church in Spring, TX with special guests Drs. Michael Fabarez, Bruce Ware, and Tom Schreiner. Our topic this year is “Holiness,” and the meeting times are as follows:
Friday, November 2nd – 7:00pm
Saturday, November 3rd – 6:30pm, 8:00pm
Sunday, November 4th – 9:00am, 10:30am, 6:30pm
The Spurgeon Conference was launched out of a concern for the need for expository preaching in local churches, the same concern of the great 19th century preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Each service will have a time of worship in song followed preaching.
