G3 Conference 2013: The Gospel Message & Mission

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.

The Powerful Life of the Praying Pastor

The 2011 Desiring God Pastor’s conference is now online for download.  Speaking on subjects related to prayer and  the pastor’s prayer life were Joel Beeke, Paul Miller, Francis Chan (that’s right) and Jerry Rankin. John Piper’s biography subject was Robert Murray McCheyne.

Francis Chan gives us some explanation of his recent departure from his church in Simi Valley, mainly motivated by the fact that he became a Christian celebrity so fast and wanted to guard himself from that mania.

By far, if you were to listen to only a few messages, I would recommend that you listen to both of Joel Beeke’s messages — one is on prayer, and the second is on family worship.  Beeke is a man who lives above and beyond the common sensibilities of our age in an admirable way. And I commend that you carefully, and thoughtfully, apply the truths of both messages. I have listened to a number of Beeke’s messages on family worship over the years, and they have motivated me to revolutionize my leading in family worship. And this message is one of his best, primarily because most of his other messages on family worship have poor audio quality.

The panel discussion was particularly helpful.  The discussion raised a lot of great points and allowed helpful interaction with the material.
