Evangelism conference speakers reach out with impassioned messages

KAREN L. Willoughby, Managing Editor SHREVEPORT – Eight men from Louisiana preached during the 2011 annual Evangelism Conference, which took place Jan. 24-25 at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport, where Chuck Pourciau is pastor.  Despite being the pastor of one of the largest Southern Baptist churches in the state, and one of the largest givers to Southern Baptist mission causes in the state, Pourciau sat in a side pew during the evangelism conference and during times of greeting, shook hands with as many people nearby as possible.
