Advance 09

Advance is going to be an incredible conference with some very talented men of God leading it. John Piper and Mark Driscoll just to name a couple of the many speakers at this conference. If you are debating on going then debate no more and buy a ticket. I consider myself quite "cheap" but even I spent the money as I see it as an investment that is well worth the cost for the resurgence of the local church. I am going to copy and paste the vision of the conference so it can speak better for itself. Go here for more info: http://www.advance09.com/

Vision

Christ promises to build the Church, and that no force will prevail against it. Yet, the local church has been heavily battered in battle. Sadly, churches in America are in steady decline, with over 4000 closing their doors and 500,000 members leaving each year--never to return. This is not what the Lord desires. The Apostle Paul tells us that " . . . through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places". The local church is called to lift-up Jesus so that all the world might see Him. The local church is called to make known the Gospel and to be the vehicle of redemption for the world. Led by local churches, Advance09 is a conference committed to the resurgence of the local church for the glory of God. Our aim is to equip attendees with the Gospel so that the local church might become all that Jesus calls it to be. At this conference, we hope to ensure that on our watch and in our time we honor Jesus and see the resurgence of the local church. Advance09 is open to anyone: pastors and lay-leaders; church members and regular-attenders. We invite you to join us in this Great Cause.
