This Fall’s conference is an examination of the doctrines of grace from both a theological and pastoral perspective. We’ve asked our presenters to wrestle through some of the tensions and practical implications of these doctrines which are definitional in Reformed soteriology. As is our custom, we’ve sought out men with decades of faithful pastoral ministry to open the Word for us.

The fall conference is designed with pastors and elders in mind, but all are welcome. Registration is free but required for planning purposes, and you can do so below. We’ll receive any voluntary gifts at the conference if you wish to help defray some of the costs. We are so grateful to the saints of Lifespring for once again graciously hosting and underwriting this conference. Conference details are below the registration.
