Manassas, VA– Alistair Begg is scheduled to preach at the open-to-the-public Worship Service that will take place Wednesday, February 25, during the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.
“Alistair Begg has a gift for teaching the Word and building the Church,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “We are delighted for him to share his zeal for the Gospel with our attendees at NRB15.”
Alistair Begg is the senior minister of Parkside Church in suburban Cleveland, OH, where he has served since 1983. Following graduation from the London School of Theology, he served for two years as assistant to the Rev. Derek J. Prime, and in 1976 was ordained to the Gospel ministry at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh. He has received honorary doctorates from Westminster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania and Cedarville University in Ohio.
Begg enjoys the privilege of leading the Parkside pastoral team and seeing a succession of young men settled in pulpits throughout the country. His teaching is heard daily across the nation on more than 1,600 radio stations that air the program, Truth For Life. He has written a number of books, including The Hand of God, Pathway to Freedom, On Being a Pastor (with Derek Prime), Name Above All Names (with Sinclair Ferguson), and a revision of Spurgeon’s devotional, Morning and Evening.
During the Worship Service at NRB15, Begg will be joined by Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President of the Southern Baptist Convention, who will also share a message. Leading the worship will be award-winning musical group Selah. There will also be a special appearance by Mariam Ibraheem, whose incarceration in Sudan was widely publicized last year. NRB will honor Ibraheem with the NRB President’s Award during the Worship Service.
The Worship Service will be free to the public. Registration will not be required. The service will begin at 7 p.m. and be held in Delta Ballroom A at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.
