One of the evidences of the doctrinal reformation that we are in is the proliferation of doctrinally sound conferences over the last two decades. Dozens of such conferences are held each year across the USA. Two years ago a friend counted over 5o that were scheduled within a 12 month span. While conferences are far from the the essence of reformation, they do provide something of a barometer to measure the growing interest in the doctrines of grace in our day.
Following is information on two of meetings that will be held this week.
The Southwest Founders Conference will meet Sept. 25-27 at Heritage Baptist Church in Mansfield, Texas. The theme is "Growing the Local Church." I am scheduled to speak 4 times. If you are in the area, come by and say hello. Andrew Nicewander plans to live-blog the conference, so check his blog if you are interested in the notes and info on the audio. I may try to "live-twitter" it. ;-)
The Evangelical Forum will host a leadership conference for Pastors and Laymen Sept. 26-27 in Charlottesville, Virginia. The theme is "Of God and Of the Holy Trinity." Joseph Pipa and Bruce Ware will be the speakers.
