Podcast with Acts 29/SBC Church Planters

August 26, 2009

This is a blogpost originally posted on February 21, 2009.  In light of the recent discussion about Acts 29 church planters in Southern Baptist life, I felt this podcast would be a constructive resource to know more about some of the A29 churches planters, what they believe, and their practices.

The Insight Podcast is hosted by Doug Baker, and recently he sat down with Acts 29 church planters J.D. Greear, Daniel Montgomery, Tyler Jones, and Sean Cordell to discuss a host of issues.  The podcast is divided into two parts.  You will certainly want to download them both.

* Part 1 *

Topics: Postmodernity – What is it?; Contextualization – What is it?; Culture and Theology; Ministry in an Urban Context; Diversity in the Local Church; Tradition and Traditionalism; The Craving for Authenticity; The Emerging Church Movement; Gospel Reductionism; The Emergent Church Movement;  Acts29 Church Planting Network; Vintage 21’s Theology and Doctrine; Tony Jones and the Gospel; The Gospel and Propositional Truth; Homosexuality and Modern Culture; Christology – Missiology – Ecclesiology.

* Part 2 *

Topics: Institutions and Denominations; Acts29 Network – Its Founding and Future; The SBC as a Missional Network; The Doctrinal Commitments of Acts29; Biblical Preaching as a Priority; Acts29 and Southern Baptists; North Carolina – Still the Bible Belt?; Requirements for an Acts29 Church Planter; Churches Planting Churches – the Biblical Model?; The SBC and Church Planting; The Future of the SBC.

I’m grateful for Doug Baker putting together an excellent podcast dealing with substantive issues that really matter to the church today. You can find previous podcasts hosted by Baker here.

Where on the one hand, the Missouri Baptist Convention de-funds all dually affiliated SBC/Acts 29 church planters, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina invites them to a convseration about the Gospel, the church, and the mission.  That’s my kind of state convention!

Doug Baker Interviews David Dockery On Consensus and Renewal

June 5, 2008

My friend Doug Baker has recently posted a three-part interview with one of the men I look up to the most – David Dockery.  Those of you who were around in January of 2007 will remember the week-long interview I had with Dr. Dockery as well as the live, interactive Q&A on the blog.  I have always appreciated the careful, articulate, and balanced approach Dr. Dockery has exhibited as a Southern Baptist statesman, and, in light of the heightened attention and interest in the SBC political sphere of things leading up to the annual meeting in Indy, I would like to recommend these MP3’s for the betterment and prospect of a gospel-driven consensus and spirit of cooperation within the SBC.

(To download the audio, right click, save as):

Part I – The Path Toward Consensus; the SBC of the past; and the Inerrancy of Scripture

Part II – Perspectives on salvation – Arminianism, Calvinism and Amyraldianism; the Legacy of the SBC’s Founding Generation; and the Doctrinal Building Blocks Required for an Orthodox Consensus Among Southern Baptists

Part III – Landmarkism; the Call to Embrace the Gospel; Expository Preaching; the Practice of the Lord’s Supper; an Overview of SBC worship; the Role of Christian Higher Education Among Southern Baptists; and The Challenge to a Rising Generation
