John Mason sent me this email:
The Anglican Connection 2017 National Conference is being held at the Crowne Plaza, Dallas Galleria-Addison, TX, 1:30PM, Tuesday, June 13 to 12:30PM, Thursday, June 15. Details can be found at: http://anglicanconnection.com/2017-national-conference-effective-gospel-centered-churches/I am sharing it with Anglicans Ablaze readers.
William Temple, a former Archbishop of Canterbury famously said: 'The Church is the only institution that exists for those who are not its members'. And in the recent book, Reformation Anglicanism, Archbishop Ben Kwashi observes: 'In much of the world today there are churches seemingly everywhere and very many Christians, yet with little positive impact on society'.
Given that so many around us have never heard God's gospel and many others don't know what to believe, Peter Mayrick, a former corporate executive and one of the keynote speakers at the AC June conference, is asking: 'Can we be more effective in gospel ministry?’
To frame our thinking and gospel ministry, speakers including Dr. John Yates III, Dr. Paul Barnett, and Dr. Felix Orji, will be revisiting vital biblical themes recovered during the 16th century Reformation - 'Scripture alone', 'Christ alone', 'by grace alone' through 'faith alone', 'to the glory of God alone'.
And given today's confusion and misunderstanding with respect to Anglican liturgy, we have invited Stephen Tong to present some of the fruits of his current doctoral research at Cambridge University. His research is titled: 'Gospel Ecclesiology and Liturgy in the Edwardian Years, c.1545-1555'. We are keen to explore how we can bring the riches of Cranmer's liturgical work to our gospel ministry today.
Keith Getty and the Gettymusic team will be leading worship and seminars on music and effective Sunday church. Both Keith and Kristyn will also speak about music and children's ministry.
Let me be bold and say that here is a conference worth attending. Each day we have Bible talks and workshops for building effective ministries. If you cannot attend yourself you might consider sending a member of staff, a lay leader or church member.
