Darrin Patrick at Southeastern Seminary

April 13, 2010

Last week, Darrin Patrick spoke three times at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and they have no posted the videos of his messages and Q&A.  Darrin is a brother whom I have had the privilege of getting to know over the past couple of years, and I encourage those of you who are seeking to cultivate gospel centrality in your life and church should lay hold of his messages from The Journey (and elsewhere).

Here are the videos from SEBTS this past week:

J.D. Greear on 20/20 Collegiate Conference

February 6, 2010

Greear is preaching from Acts 4 on the significance of Jesus being the only way to heaven.  There are six cultural assumptions on why this belief is so controversial to most Americans.

1.  Our culture believes that claiming there is only one way to God is archaic.

Christianity was born into a world where saying He was the only way was every bit as politically incorrect, if not more so, than it is today.

2.  Claiming that there is one way to God is arrogant.

Peter’s attitude in verse 20: “we can’t help but speak what we have seen or heard.”  It is not arrogance but believing that Jesus is who He said He is.


David Platt at 20/20 Collegiate Conference

February 6, 2010

David Platt begins his message with this video clip.  Give is a look.

Below is a summary of the key points Platt made in his message this morning.  When first personal pronouns are used, they are quotes of David speaking . . .

The last few years have been a crisis of belief in my own life, and it has revolved around the Bible. “Do I believe that it is true?”  Not if I believe it is accurate or authentic, but if I believe it to be true.  If it is, then the implications of our lives are staggering.

God Exposed: Awkward Preaching in a Comfortable Age

August 11, 2009

God Exposed HeaderI want to recommend what looks to be an excellent conference on preaching jointly sponsored by SEBTS and IX Marks called God Exposed: Awkward Preaching in a Comfortable Age.  The dates are September 25-26, 2009 and will be held on the campus of Southeastern Seminary.  Conference speakers include Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, C.J. Mahaney, and Michael McKinley.  Here is a blurb from the conference website:

God Exposed will call pastors and church leader to embrace and defend expositional preaching as a means to strengthen and grow the church. Expositional preaching – that which has as its aim to explain and apply a particular portion of God’s Word – is especially important in a day when many are abandoning faithfulness to the Scripture in their pulpit ministries. This conference will encourage and train pastors whose primary calling is ministering the Word of God to their people.

Registration for the conference is an affordable $45, and the deadline is September 21, 2009. Below is the conference schedule.  To register for the conference, click here.

Headed to Southeastern Seminary

October 28, 2008

This Wednesday and Thursday, I will be visiting the campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary to spend some time with old friends (Doug Baker and Nathan Finn) and hoping to connect with many students for the first time.  Tom Ascol will be speaking in chapel Thursday morning, and I am tagging along as a personal provocateur. 😉 Seriously, this will be my first time to visit Southeastern, and I am excited about checking out the seminary that is forwarding the Great Commission and Baptist renewal in the SBC.

On Thursday after lunch, I will be hanging out in the rotunda of the Jacumin-Simpson building talking with students about church planting with the convictions of being distinctively Baptist, confessionally Reformed, and missionally driven and are looking to invest their lives in planting and multiplying churches North America.  If you are in the area or on campus, please stop by and say hello!
