This October, The Gospel Coalition is hosting a special conference to encourage faithfulness in pastoral ministry and Phoenix Seminary is pleased to offer students and friends of Phoenix Seminary a special discount. This first-ever “Enduring Faithfulness” conference is happening October 16–18 in Los Angeles and Phoenix Seminary will also be on the exhibit floor with information about our educational programs. Don't miss it!
Here is the conference description:
Pastors expect to help others through times of suffering. But many do not realize how much they, too, will suffer. Caught off guard, many end up deeply hurt and quit the ministry, deciding that perhaps they misunderstood God’s call or that they simply do not have what it takes. Pastors and ministry leaders who work alongside them need encouragement to run the race with endurance.
In The Gospel Coalition’s first West Coast Conference—Enduring Faithfulness—veteran pastors from around the country will open 2 Timothy and consider the example of Paul, who fought the good fight and kept his faith in Jesus Christ. Dozens of other workshops will explore various aspects of gospel ministry, from appreciating the beauty of Christian sexual ethics to thinking creatively about faith and work. Several workshops will profile historical examples, such as Jonathan Edwards and Augustine, to instruct and challenge us to cultivate ministry that lasts a lifetime and beyond.
We are pleased that the Gospel Coalition has granted everyone associated with Phoenix Seminary a 25% discount or $60 off their ticket. Registration is available online with the discount code PHOENIX.
