Sproul, Founder and Chairman of Ligonier Ministries in Orlando, FL; Conrad Mbewe, Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church in Lusaka, Zambia; Dr. Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, AL; Tom Pennington, Pastor-Teacher of Countryside Bible Church in Southlake, TX; and Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends.

While seats to the conference have been sold out, interested individuals are invited to participate in the conference via a free, live Internet video stream. The stream will be available at tmstrangefire.org and at gty.org/LiveStream, Wednesday through Friday, October 16–18.

The conference will begin with the first session at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 16. The last session begins at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18.

Following the Strange Fire conference, Dr. MacArthur will release a book bearing the same name. Strange Fire: The Danger of Offending the Holy Spirit with Counterfeit Worship is scheduled to hit book shelves on November 12. The 352-page book is being published by Thomas Nelson.
