Conferences are typically sessions recorded during a specially scheduled event typically featuring a keynote speaker but not limited to only one speaker. Conferences often feature a series of different speakers such as the annual Chafer Theological Seminary Pastors’ conferences.

The Summer New England Bible Conference topic was Jerusalem. This short series was taught at Preston City Bible Church July 18-21, 2006, shortly after Dr. Dean returned from a tour to Israel.
How does the Holy Spirit guide the believer? To what degree is the Holy Spirit involved in everyday decision making? In this series, Dr. Dean answers these questions and distinguishes between the view consistently presented throughout scripture concerning the Holy Spirit's leading and guiding ministry in the believer's life and today's scripturally unsupported but popular mystical view.

Chafer Theological Seminary Distinctives
It’s been observed that many church and seminary doctrinal statements do not always provide a clear portrait of the focus of an institution. Philosophies of ministry differ widely in groups with identical doctrinal positions. To further clarify the nuances of the Chafer Seminary focus, we have on our website our distinctives. But even that needs further clarification. Over the years, we have dedicated many of our conferences to further enhance our understanding of these distinctives.
One of our most significant distinctives is that of the sufficiency of Scripture, a phrase, unfortunately open to wide interpretation. One area in which we apply this is in the area of creation. We believe God’s Word is sufficient for informing us of how and when God created. We do not hold to views which compromise with current popular models of an old-earth creation. Our keynote speaker is addressing many issues related to creation.
Another distinctive is in the area of the Christian life. We hold to a distinctive, dispensational framework for understanding the spiritual life, experiential sanctification, in this dispensation. Two of this year’s presentations focus on aspects of this distinctive.
A third distinctive is a premillennial, pretribulational, classic dispensational view of God’s plan for history. This year four presentations will help refine our understanding of this distinctive.
