Ministry Events and Conferences
Dr. Lance D. Watson is the Senior Pastor and CEO of the Saint Paul's Baptist Church, a nonprofit organization that has produces several signature events and conferences each year. For details on upcoming signature events, please visit www.myspbc.org.
Life Empowerment SUPER Conference (LESC) is a powerful and popular symposium that addresses the specific faith, family and financial needs of participants; empowering them to take their next step of personal enablement and development.
Thunder On Thursdays is an annual series of dynamic worship celebrations that convene during the Lenten Season and feature both deeply inspirational music, from ancient and contemporary traditions as well as world class speakers and preachers whose words encourage participants in their faith development.
Fire On Fridays is a seven (7) week signature preaching series that features some of the nation’s most dynamic and charismatic speakers plus college choirs and nationally renowned psalmists in an intense and inspirational worship celebration. Attracting more than 15,000 people each year, this is a “can’t miss” event.
Breakthrough is the New Year’s Eve Celebration of the Saint Paul’s Baptist Church. Set in coliseums and sports arenas around Central Virginia, this annual festival has drawn as many as 15,000 people in what has been noted as the “largest Christian New Year’s Eve” celebration in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Each of these events and many others were conceived by Dr. Lance and Rose Watson out of their desire to assist people in their efforts to become and achieve their personal best, and to allow themselves the opportunity to intimately speak and teach into the lives of those in attendance.
