Gulf Coast Preachers Conference 2021

August 10 -12, 2021

Conference Information

Bible Believers Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas is the venue for the Preachers Conference this year.  We are looking forward to hosting you, August 10-12, 2021.  We have provided some information on this page that we hope will help you decide to join us for the Conference.  


When you are ready to register, please fill out and submit the Registration Form below.  Please register now, as early registration will help us make adequate preparations for the Conference. 


The theme for the Conference is “Pass it On” from 2 Tim 2:2.  Guest preachers are going to speak on various aspects of discipleship and training that can help all of our like-minded pastors commit to faithful men the things that we have learned.


The Conference this year will be for men only.  As much as we love and appreciate our wives and families, we believe that the preachers attending the Conference must make and strengthen valuable friendships. We’ll have a much better opportunity to fellowship together without our families present.

Conference Speakers

Pastor Roger Hoots, Pastor Rick DeMichele, Pastor Rick Sowell, Pastor Tim Haveman, Pastor Jonathan Marshall, Pastor Jason Murphy, Dr. Wayne Sehmish. Host Pastor Bevans Welder.

Day Sessions

Tuesday and Wednesday, beginning at 9:00 am, we will have 3 sessions each morning, with plenty of break time between sessions.  After the sessions, we will serve lunch.  

Fellowship Outings

Thursday morning, we are going to provide 3 different venues for fellowship, depending on your preference.  We are offering:

  • A Scramble Golf Tournament for the golfers,
  • A Tour of the Lexington Aircraft Carrier for the history enthusiasts,
  • A Pistol and Long Range Rifle Competition for the shooters. 

We will serve lunch, afterwards.  The purpose of these events is to build good friendships with like-minded pastors who will be there for you when you need them.

Evening Preaching

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening, at 6:00 pm, we will have two preachers each night.  And we’ll provide a snack or desserts and refreshments after the services.


We’re recommending that you not wear a suit and tie in the daytime sessions.  South Texas is hot in the summer and you’ll be much more comfortable without a coat and tie.  You’ll particularly want to dress comfortably for the Thursday fellowships.
