Text & Context

As the 26th approach I cannot think of another thing that I would rather be doing on my birthday then pay $99 to attend the National Resurgence Conference 2008. But, I don't have $400 to spend on a hotel and food, and I can't miss school. Here's the cool thing, they are broadcasting it for free online. Check it out if your interested.

National Resurgence Conference 2008: Text & Context / Acts 29 Bootcamp

Understanding the text of Scripture and the context in which we live are essential in preaching the gospel today. This is true whether you are a preaching pastor or a Christian that wants to reach your co-worker/neighbor. Joining us for the Resurgence Conference will be Dr. John Piper, author and pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN; Mark Driscoll, author and pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, WA; Matt Chandler from The Village Church in Dallas, TX; as well as Jim Gilmore author and business consultant with expertise on studying the culture and trends of today. This conference will also combine the Acts 29 Network Church Planting Boot Camp which will be open for attendees of the National Resurgence Conference. Cost is $99 per individual.
