Kevin Vanhoozer speaks about Pastor Theologians and why we need them in a series of videos for The Center for Pastor Theologians, and as a promotional for an upcoming conference and his soon-to-be-released book The Pastor As Public Theologian, Reclaiming a Lost Vision
Here’s a wonderful video that was produced by Desiring God, which seems to be a preview for a new book by John Piper to be released in 2016. Website is here.
This years TGC National Conference “Coming Home” is now available online. The usual suspects gathered in Orlando in April to talk about Heaven. Don Carson, Tim Keller, John Piper, Phil Ryken, Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, Voddie Baucham, and a new face, a pastor from Brazil, Augustus Nicodemus Lopes, gave the plenary addresses.
From the website:
The conference titled Coming Home: New Heaven and New Earth sought to stir longing for our ultimate home in heaven as we explored the sweep of redemption from creation to consummation, from Genesis to Revelation. Through times of worship, prayer, fellowship and instruction, we sought to reaffirm the Bible’s teaching on eschatology and declare in word and song with joyful hope that Jesus is returning soon. Along with the nine main plenary sessions we had more than 50 workshops and focus gatherings led by speakers addressing topics including evangelism, homosexuality, student ministry, sexual abuse, faith and work, and more.
Don’t miss Al Mohler’s workshop address “Aftermath”, or G. K. Beale & Ligon Duncan’s workshop “The Gospel and Eschatology.”
ChristianAudio’s free offering for the month of June is John MacArthur’s excellent book Being a Dad Who Leads. This is a book I return to frequently as a father, and this audio version is a welcome addition. If you’re a dad, no matter what age your children, this is a very helpful book.
James White, R. O. Roberts, Josh Buice, Voddie Baucham, Paul Washer, Tim Challies, Steve Lawson and David Miller deliver addresses at the G3 2015 Conference about the Word of God.
From the website:
The church of Jesus Christ in every generation is given the weighty charge to proclaim and preserve the Word of Truth. What we believe about the Bible will shape how we live, how we worship, and how we seek to educate our children and grandchildren. Have you considered the lack of Bible reading in a typical worship service in our present day? Have you talked with your friends outside of your church about their family worship patterns? If you use the word “catechism” outside of a church or conference setting today, you may receive strange looks of complete confusion. The fact is, we are living in a day where the Bible has become the most popular book of history and yet the most irrelevant book among the culture. God has breathed out His Word. Preachers have proclaimed God’s Word. Martyrs have died to preserve God’s Word. Today, we don’t have an option to relax when it comes to the inerrancy, authority, sufficiency, veracity, infallibility, and holiness of God’s Word.
Clarus is the SW Regional Conference of The Gospel Coalition held in Albuquerque, NM this year in March. Among the plenaries were Don Carson, David Helm and Alistair Begg. The title of the conference was “Assembled Under the Word: Preaching and the Church.
Steve Lawson, Conrad Mbewe, Paul Washer, John Synder, Voddie Baucham, Tim Challies, Josh Buice, and David Miller joined at the 2014 G4 Conference to preach on issues of the church.
From the website:
The church was founded by Jesus Christ and serves the purpose of bringing glory, honor, and praise to God. In our present day landscape of American evangelicalism, the church is being morphed into concert halls, entertainment stages, and country clubs. The younger generation today is being raised without any connection or commitment to the church of Jesus Christ. In fact, many churches are forming Saturday night services and minimizing worship opportunities in order to accommodate the pace of our American families. The culture is trying to change the church into something modern, convenient, cheap, and non-intrusive. In the process, doctrine has taken a backseat to pragmatics and the pulpit has been replaced with entertainment programs. From coffee shop churches to Internet churches – there is a massive problem that must be addressed in our modern culture. Let us not forget that while all of these modern advancements take place that are morphing the foundation of the church, hundreds of thousands of small dying churches are preparing to breathe their last breath. The subject of the church is a vital issue that must be addressed and it must be addressed from the counsel of sacred Scriptures.
The media is available for the 2014 Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference featuring Tim & Kathy Keller, John & Noel Piper, Nancy Guthrie, Mary Mohler, Kristie Anyabwile, Don Carson, and many, many others.
From the website:
We thank God for his outpouring of blessing on about 4,000 women from 38 countries around the globe as they gathered in Orlando, June 27 to 29, 2014, for The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference.
In TGC’s women’s initiatives, we aim to encourage the growth of women in faithfully studying and sharing the Scriptures; in actively loving and serving the church; and in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in all our various callings. We believe TGCW14, by God’s grace, helped move us on toward these goals.
And now we’re ready to keep on moving. Enjoy learning from dozens of workshops, plenary addresses from Nehemiah, and other resources captured at this remarkable event.
Steve Lawson, Joel Beeke, David Miller, Paul Washer, Don Whitney, Voddie Baucham, and Tim Challies deliver messages at the G3 Conference in 2013.
From the website:
The message of the gospel has been neglected in many pulpits in modern evangelicalism. In an aggressive attempt to grow churches through schemes and strategies of man, the true gospel has taken a backseat and all of this has developed a skewed mission for the church. Rather than pleading with sinners to repent and be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ in our neighborhoods and throughout the nations of the world, many churches are interested in reporting numbers – and this approach has led to untold masses of false conversions. We must have a resurgence of gospel preaching and missions for the glory of King Jesus.
Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically was a conference held in Nashville in 2013 that featured some speakers who I am very familiar with, such as Paul Washer and Conrad Mbewe, and some men who are new to me.
John Snyder is the author and central figure behind the Behold Your God DVD Bible Study which travels across the world to talk about the lives and ministries of well know figures from church history, and reflects biblically on the lessons we can learn from them as they highlight certain truths in their lives, either positively or negatively.
The men speaking at this conference include John Snyder, R. O. Roberts, Anthony Mathneia,, Andrew Davies, Jordan Thomas, Paul Washer and Conrad Mbewe.
