One of the resources that 9:38 offers is conferences which help Christians – whether they are students, workers or current ministry trainees – consider how they can maximise their gospel ministry.
The idea of these conferences is not to push people into full-time gospel ministry. It will not be right for everyone and many may do better to glorify God in other ways. Neither do these conferences try to take the place of the local church’s efforts to be looking for and encouraging those with potential for gospel ministry. Rather, the 9:38 conferences are designed to be part of the on-going conversation at the local church level. The great benefits of a conference are:
- a refreshing time away in a different context;
- excellent Bible teaching on big-picture issues from a range of different voices;
- streamed teaching tightly focused on the different needs and concerns of students, workers and ministry trainees;
- the chance to 'take stock' and continue to consider longer term possibilities;
the encouragement and learning experience of being with a large group of people from different backgrounds.
Our conferences are over for 2018/19. Planning is currently underway for the 2019/20 conference season and we will announce dates and venues in due course. Sign up to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook to keep up-to-date with our news.
