Mark Dever interviews Mark Stiles and Dave Furman, both who are church planters in the United Arab Emirates (and you thought your city was tough!)
Mark Dever, C. J. Mahaney, Darrin Patrick, and Dave Harvey gathered at Sovereign Grace’s PLANT Conference.
Plant! is about vision and action and ideas outside the box. Sovereign Grace Ministries is gathering church planting thinkers and doers from Acts 29, PCA, IX Marks, and the Southern Baptist Convention for conversation across the lines. It’s a conference, yes, but it’s so much more. Whatever your background, if you’re a church planter or ever hope to throw yourself into the mission of the gospel through church planting, you’ll love what you encounter at Plant!.
John Piper gathers a group of men who have a heart for the church to talk about various issues facing the church: Bryan Chapell, Matt Chandler, Ed Stetzer, Danny Akin, Tyler Jones and Mark Driscoll.
There were some messages that stood out to me. Piper always is a treat to listen to and learn from.
As much as I have been struggling with Driscoll lately, his message “Mission Idolatry” was good stuff, much of the material drawn from G.K. Beale’s book We Become What We Worship, but applied to church and missions.
Ed Stetzer’s message “Keys to Understanding the Church” and the Kingdom does a good job of examining how many church plants and missional (I’m really getting sick of this term) movements have derailed from the purpose of the church.
