From April 13-15, I had the opportunity to travel to Orlando, Florida, along with a friend of mine to attend the 2015 Gospel Coalition National Conference. This conference is held every other year. This year's speakers were too plenty to mention, but some men that I greatly respect, all centered and unified around the Gospel.
For 3 days, we spent day and night sitting at the feet of the scriptures alone as our guide. It was refreshing beyond belief. This was not about the latest ways people are "reaching people", the latest trends, but this conference surrounds the idea that the Gospel is enough. The Gospel unifies. The Gospel is our center. The Gospel is our singular hope.
I invite you to check out The Gospel Coalition website. They regularly post articles and writings there, and even some of my friends have been posted there. It is a great, regular encouragement to stay Gospel focused. www.thegospelcoalition.org
