Kay ArthurKeynote Speaker
Leader Kit—Kay Bio
Kay Arthur’s exciting, practical approach to studying the Bible has helped millions of people around the world dive into God’s Word for themselves. Through the Precept™ Bible Study Method, Kay has spent her life championing biblical literacy and desires for every believer in Christ to live out His Word every day.
At the age of 29, a divorced mother of two and working as a nurse, Kay called in sick to work because she was sick at heart—sick over the life of sin she had been living. She had religion, but she didn’t have a relationship with God. On the morning of July 16, 1963, she fell on her knees as a sinner and rose as pure and whole in the Lord’s sight. “For ‘Whoever will call on the name of the LORD will be saved’” (Romans 10:13, NASB). “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NASB). As she deepened her relationship with the Lord and learned more of His Word, her sorrow turned into joy and her mourning turned into laughter.
In 1965, she married Jack Arthur, and in 1970 they founded Precept in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Kay and Jack created Precept to teach believers how to study God’s Word for themselves, and their method and studies quickly spread around the world.
God has used Kay to reach millions of households through TV, radio, writing, and speaking. An author of more than 100 books and Bible study workbooks, Kay continues to collaborate with the Precept team on Bible study resources. Kay and Jack served as co-CEOs of Precept until 2012 when their son David assumed the position.
After decades of faithful ministry at home and abroad, Kay is still going strong. As a member of Precept’s board of directors and a ministry ambassador, Kay continues to travel, teach, and write to the glory of God.

Lauren TalleyMusical Guest
Lauren Talley is one of Christian music’s most dynamic talents and has inspired a generation of young people to serve the Lord.
Born into a rich musical heritage, Lauren sang her first solo at age 2 when she toddled onto the stage, interrupted her family’s concert and announced she wanted to “thing.” Lauren went on to make her own mark on the gospel music world as a member of her family group, The Talleys, with whom she received numerous awards, including a 2015 Dove Award for their song, “Hidden Heroes.” Lauren’s lead vocals shine on eleven number one hits for the group. She has recorded seven solo albums, including 2019’s unprecedented release of two albums simultaneously, “Glorious God: Songs of Worship and Wonder,” and “Loudest Praise: Hymns Of Mercy, Love and Grace.” Her 2017 album, “The Gospel,” reached the number one position on Billboard’s southern gospel chart.
She is also the author of “Songs In The Night,” a companion devotional book to her 2010 album of the same title. Lauren performs solo concerts and is a featured singer and speaker for many women’s conferences and special events across the country. She is frequently recognized for her appearances on numerous Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts, RFD-TV’s “The Music City Show” and “In Touch” with Dr. Charles Stanley. In 2014 she was awarded an honorary doctorate degree in Worship Arts from John Wesley University.
When not traveling or recording her own music, Lauren often serves as studio background singer and producer for other recordings and works with emerging artists as a voice and performance coach. Lauren is a busy lady but always finds time to cheer on her beloved Tennessee Volunteers, drink sweet tea and spend time laughing with family and friends.
“My job as a communicator is to give people the truth of the Gospel,” Lauren says. “I want people to know that Jesus is everything – He’s the Answer the world is searching for, He’s the solution to all problems and He’s the only One in whom we have real hope. He called me to give people His message when I was 12 years old, and fulfilling that call is all I’ve ever really wanted.”
