Conference Notice: The Gospel Comes to Life

We at Between the Times would like to make you aware of a conference being held on SEBTS’ campus on February 6-7. The Gospel Comes to Life: Why Everything You Do Matters to God is a conference intended primarily for college students, but also open to seminary students, lay people, and advanced high school students. If you are interested in registering for the conference, please click here.

The thrust of the conference is the belief that the gospel is powerful and it is relevant for absolutely everything we think or do. Its relevance is not limited to the four walls of a church building, but extends to every square inch of the fabric of human existence, to every dimension of human culture, and to every intellectual and social endeavor of mankind. It is relevant not only to our private devotions, but to our college classes and our future vocations. It matters not only during Sunday morning worship, but also during coffee shop conversations, movie viewings, and discussions about public issues. Come and see how everything we do and think matters to God and how, when we discover this, the gospel really comes to life.

The plenary sessions will be led by Danny Akin, Mark Driscoll, C. J. Mahaney, and William Brown. The conference schedule is as follows:
