"Gospel Growth vs. Church Growth"

"Gospel Growth vs. Church Growth" is an attention-getting title.

It is also the name of a conference to be held at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC in late October. The conference is co-sponsored by 9Marks Ministries and Matthias Media. Speakers at the event include Tony Payne, Phillip Jensen, and Mark Dever. From a cursory glance at the schedule, the conference looks to be thought-provoking. Confusion reigns in the current day over the appropriateness of church growth. This conference should stimulate much thought and discussion.

Early-bird registration clocks in at 80 bucks. Seminarians will want to jump on this price, as the conference should fill up quickly. Having been a member of CHBC, I know firsthand that the church building does not hold a great deal of room. As the profile of 9Marks grows, events like this only attract more and more attention and hopefully, more faithful growth of the church.
