9Marks Evangelism Conference at SEBTS
One of the things that I miss about living in the US is occasionally attending worthwhile conferences in the Raleigh-Durham area. 9Marks at Southeastern was always one conference that I looked forward to attending as it is solid, biblical content with an unusually gifted line up of speakers. This year is no different as 9Marks looks at evangelism and looks to answer these questions:
What is evangelism?
What is the church's role in evangelism?
Who is called to evangelize?
How can I evangelize better to my neighbor?
When a church has an unbiblical understanding of the gospel, its members don’t evangelize. They evangelize in misleading or manipulative ways. Or they share a message that’s not the gospel. But a biblical understanding of evangelism clarifies our role in the mission God has given to the church. We should preach the good news about what Christ has done, and pray that God would bring people to believe it.
The fifth annual 9Marks at Southeastern Conference on September 27-28, 2013 will explore the topic of Evangelism, its relationship to the church, and why we must tell non-believers the good news of Jesus Christ.
The speakers for this fifth mark will be Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, John Folmar, J.D. Greear, and Peter Williams.
