Reformed Theological Seminary Panel: Having Confidence in the Scriptures - Justin Taylor, Bruce Baugus, John Currid, Mike Kruger, and Chuck Hill

While walking with those two disciples on the Emmaus road Jesus, “opened their minds to understand the Scriptures” (Luke 24:45 ESV). Christians affirm the inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of God’s Word, but sometimes struggle with confidence in Scriptures. The Scriptures are attacked from outside the Church and are oftentimes minimized within the Church. This panel will strengthen our confidence in the truthfulness and trustworthiness of the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments.

Learn how other churches are teaching and equipping their leaders and members through both formal and informal theological training. Participants include Michael Horton, whose just-published Pilgrim Theology seeks to equip those on a path of theological understanding; and pastor-theologians Kevin DeYoung (University Reformed Church, East Lansing, MI), Justin Buzzard (Garden City Church, Silicon Valley), and J.D. Greear (Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, NC).

Reformed Theological Seminary Panel: Seeing Christ in the Old Testament - David Mathis, Mark Futato, Scott Redd, Derek Thomas, and Miles VanPelt

On the road to Emmaus Jesus was helping two of His disciples see Him in the Old Testament, and beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself (Luke 24:27 ESV). Christians affirm that all of Scripture points to Jesus, but often have difficulty seeing how the pieces fit together. This panel with show us Jesus in each part of the OT and how there is a crescendo that builds in God's plan of redemption leading directly to Him.

1:30 PM

Session #1 - Redefining Work - Tim Keller

2:00 PM

Panel Discussion #1 - Redefining Work - Tim Keller, Bob Doll, Katherine Leary Alsdorf, Greg Forster, Dave Kiersznowski

What is work, and how do we see it through the lens of Holy Scripture? From Genesis to Revelation we can trace a gospel-centered vocational theology. Yet a biblically faithful theology of work is often overlooked, misunderstood, and distorted in our churches. If we are going to better integrate our faith and our work, we must reframe and wholeheartedly embrace a faithful theology of work.

2:45 PM

Session #2 - Reframing Pastoral Work

Bob Doll - What Business Leaders Need (Part 1 - 15 minutes)

Tom Nelson - The Pastoral Vocation (Part 2 - 25 minutes)

3:15 PM

Panel Discussion #2: Reframing Pastoral Work - Tom Nelson, Tim Keller, John Yates, Bob Doll, and Crawford Loritts

How does a pastor help his congregation better understand the ways God is using work to refine and shape the people in his church and how God is using his church to bring the shalom of the gospel into the world? A robust theology of work will reframe the pastor’s priorities and practices, in preaching, liturgies, and missional priorities. Sermons can be crafted and illustrated with work in mind. Sunday liturgies may honor the calling of congregants to specific spheres of culture. The church’s mission will expand to support the equipping and nurture of congregants for faithful presence at their places of work throughout the week.

Panel Discussion #3: Rethinking Work - Tim Keller, Tom Nelson, Dave Kiersznowski, and Katherine Leary Alsdorf

What are the primary ways a good theology of work practically changes the church and its mission in the world, including: evangelism, career decisions and choice of vocation, approaches to leadership and power, and stewardship of opportunity and influence. Our speakers will talk from experience about how their own lives and the lives of those they’ve helped equip have changed as a result of deeper theological grounding and gospel application.
