LAS COLINAS—Well-known comedian, songwriter and vocalist Mark Lowry will be performing during the Classics Luncheon (formerly the Senior Adult Luncheon) of the Empower Conference on Monday, Feb. 27 from 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.

Lowry, who has spent more than 20 years as the baritone member of the Gaither Vocal Band, will sing Southern Gospel classics and bring his light-hearted humor to the luncheon, which kicks off this year’s evangelism conference at the Irving Convention Center in Las Colinas.

The event is open to all ages, and tickets can be purchased for $10 each at sbtexas.com/empower or at the door.

Following the lunch, Lowry will be joined by longtime Southern Baptist preachers Jimmy Draper, George Harris and Bailey Smith at the Classics Session, which will run from 1:30–4:00 p.m. Draper is president emeritus of LifeWay Christian Resources and former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. Harris served for more than 25 years as pastor of Castle Hills First Baptist Church in San Antonio and is a former president of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. Smith, also a former SBC president, has led evangelistic crusades around the world and is author of the best seller Real Evangelism.
