Stephen Olford - Can’t Afford to be Influenced
While attending Philadelphia College of Bible I heard Dr. Stephen F. Olford speak. He was blessed with a long and fruitful ministry on both sides of the Atlantic. Olford Ministries International in Memphis, Tennessee, is his legacy. His passion was for training pastors, preachers, teachers, and leaders in effective, expository preaching. In his book Preaching the Word of God, he pointedly reminds us: “(The preacher) cannot afford to be influenced by the reaction of his congregation, or the opposition of his critics: he is accountable to his Lord alone. (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
