The Gospel Coalition Conference (I just registered)

If you are going to this conference, particularly if you’re from L.A. (but even if you’re not), then please let me know!

The Gospel Coalition
has extended early-bird registration for the April conference until January 31. (In February the regular price kicks in.)

I’m really looking forward to this conference, as some of our best pastor-theologians preach and teach through 2 Timothy. Check out the sessions below. I know of no other conference that provides this degree of biblical, practical content.

Plenary Sessions
  • Tim Keller: “The Grand Demythologizer: The Gospel and Idolatry” (Acts 19:21-41)
  • John Piper: “The Promise of Life” (2 Timothy 1:1-12)
  • Phil Ryken: “The Pattern of Sound Words” (2 Timothy 1:13-2:13)
  • Mark Driscoll: “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth” (2 Timothy 2:14-26)
  • Edward Copeland: “Shadowlands: Pitfalls and Parodies of Gospel-Centered Ministry” (2 Timothy 3:1-9)
  • Bryan Chapell: “Preach the Word!” (2 Timothy 3:10-4:5)
  • Ajith Fernando: “Gospel-Faithful Mission in the New Christendom”
  • Ligon Duncan: “Finishing Well” (2 Timothy 4:6-22)
  • D.A. Carson: “‘That By All Means I Might Win Some’: Faithfulness and Flexibility in Gospel Proclamation” (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
