Paul urges Timothy to “preach the word” and to be ready both “in season and out of season” (2 Tim 4:2). He foresees times of fruitfulness but also of resistance and indifference to truth. Many of us in Western Europe can relate to resistance, though we labour in a continent that was once fruitful. But what should we do when the soil is hard and unyielding? When fruit seems slow in coming?
The answer is to preach the gospel. For no matter the season we may find ourselves in, God’s glorious Word never changes. Neither does his call upon our churches to be the people of God in the here and now.
Come and join us as we look to challenge and encourage each other to plant churches and be gospel ministers For All Seasons.
The conference is a regional Acts 29 Bootcamp being organised in partnership by Acts 29 Western Europe and 2020 Birmingham. It will focus on the vision of church planting, the calling of the planter, the mandate to multiply churches and the theological foundation for gospel-centred church planting.
There will be an opportunity to find out more about a city-wide church-planting initiative being undertaken in Birmingham, through which a coalition of churches are working to see at least 20 churches planted in the city by 2020.
