A great worship conference you should attend

droppedImageIn October I have the privilege of speaking, along with Carl Trueman, T. David Gordon, Terry Johnson, Paul Jones, and others, at the Reformation Worship Conference in Powder Springs, GA. I have attended this conference a few times and have always found it to be enriching and stimulating. Seeing the beautiful sanctuary of Midway Presbyterian Church and participating in the hymn singing is worth the price of admission!

The sessions are all quite good as well, ranging from historical to philosophical to practical. And you can’t ask for a better lineup of speakers on this important topic!

My fellow Baptists will be happy to know that this conference, although sponsored by Presbyterians, is not overly Presbyterian. Past conferences have included Baptist speakers such as Steve Lawson, and this Baptist was asked to speak this year! Besides, as the title of the conference indicates, what is emphasized at the conference are the core Reformation principles of worship that birthed both Presbyterian and Baptist worship. We may differ on polity and baptism, and we may even use different language some times, but when it comes to theology and philosophy of worship, we are kissing cousins.

So I heartily commend this conference to you. Today is actually the last day to receive the early-bird registration discount, so act fast!
