Speaking Schedule: New Jersey/New York, June, 2009
06/06/2009 - James WhiteWe have finalized plans for my trip to New Jersey and New York, June 20th through the 29th. I will be speaking twelve times at eight different churches, including the dialogue with Imam Shamsi Ali. I should note that I will also be using my new digital projector, provided by one of God's folks out there from the Ministry Resource list; I will be streaming the dialogue live the evening of June 25th using the EeePc, also from the list, using the external battery and microphone, also from the list (I can even charge my BlackBerry off of that external battery via its USB port--tremendously useful!). I will get there on time, Lord willing, and hopefully a little less rushed, because I will be using my Garmin Nuvi 255W to navigate the New York streets--also from the Ministry Resource list. So once again, to all who have helped in that way, thank you.
I begin my time in New Jersey at Trinity Fellowship Church in Tom's River. Follow the link for directions. At the moment I will be speaking Sunday morning in the regular services, but I will also be speaking Saturday evening, June 20th. I assume the start time is 7pm, but, the website does not currently say, so, double check before you head out. Saturday evening I will be giving my presentation on New Testament reliability. I can honestly say I have never produced a lecture/presentation that has been more widely accepted and appreciated than this one. I really enjoy giving it as well.
After speaking Sunday morning the 21st I will be headed to Trinity Baptist Church in Montville, New Jersey to preach in the Sunday evening service. The service begins at 6pm.
Monday through Wednesday morning I will be speaking in Haledon at the Sovereignty of God Conference. See the banner ad on the main page for details. I believe I speak on Monday and Wednesday, but I do not have those details.
Thursday evening June 25th I will be in Queens for the dialogue with Imam Shamsi Ali at the United Presbyterian Church of Ridgewood, 62-54 60th Place (off of Metropolitan Avenue) at 7pm. Directions: 718-417-9562. Information: 631-991-1226.
The next evening (as if there will be much of me left by now!) I will be poured into the pulpit of the Masspequa Church of God, 890 Hicksville Road (Route 107), Pastor Jim Capo. Now, there are only two other churches in the US, if my memory serves correctly, that have had me preach more times than the Massapequa church: Covenant of Grace Church in St. Charles (where I have spoken the first weekend in December for nine years running, I think), and, of course, PRBC. Hope Reformed Baptist is in the mix somewhere there (see below), but probably not on the Sunday service race. Anyway, I will be speaking on "The Kingship of God: The Christian's Lost Treasure." We will meet at 7pm. If you are coming north on the 107 keep an eye out for a white fence on the right, or you'll drive right past. It is a little easier coming south from the Southern State (do I spend too much time in Long Island or what?).
The next afternoon, June 27th, I will be at the Lynbrook Baptist Church, 225 Earle Avenue (corner of Peninsula Boulevard), at 2pm, "Understanding Islam to the Glory of Christ."
That evening I will be at the West Sayville Reformed Bible Church, 31 Rollstone Avenue (off of Montauk Highway) at 7pm, giving my New Testament Reliability presentation (only time on Long Island).
I will be proving my Reformed Baptist credentials on Sunday the 28th, first speaking at 9:30am and 11am at the Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Merrick (36 Smith Street off of Merrick Avenue), and then I will head East and visit the folks at the Hope Reformed Baptist Church out in Medford, where I will again address Islam, but this time, "The Bible & the Qur'an: Their Messages and History."
Early the next morning someone will pour what is left of me on a plane and ship me back to Phoenix. :-)
