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.

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.
