T4G Conference- The Unadjusted Gospel...

   A short time ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to be with about 8000 other super cool dudes who attended the Together for the Gospel Conference.  Here, in the great town of Louisville, KY, we crammed into a convention center where the bathroom lines were longer for the men than the women, the coffee was as warm and welcome to the soul as the encouragement of the strong male voices lifting praises to God in between the awesome teaching times.
   Primarily, this was a group of pastors and elders gathering on a bi-annual basis to hear the teaching of some super pastors and theologians.  It was a very encouraging time.  Denominations and eschatological differences were put away for the common unity of the gospel!!  No, this was not some ecumenical gathering of compromisers...This was a fervent arduous group of men who desired nothing more than to see the truth of the gospel lifted up in a righteous fashion to the glory of God...
Along the course of the week, I had the opportunity to hear John MacArthur, John Piper, Al Mohler, RC Sproul, Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, CJ Mahaney, Joshua Harris, Thabiti Anyabwile....just to name a few. It was  both enriching and admonishing.  In addition to this group was a great collection of men from my own roots.  From New Hampshire came some fine old friends from my home church in New England,... who continue to boldly proclaim and live out the gospel in a dark place...and from my new home in Harrisonburg, came my mighty fine new brothers in Christ,...from the Aletheia Network of churches who among other audiences, purpose themselves to meet, love, and see saved,  the lost people of the college crowds.  It was so great to be surrounded by so fine a group of men passionate for the awesome things God was going to be doing through them...Check out the link below:
