The Pastor as Father and Son

This is going to be a great conference:
Don Carson has accepted John Piper’s invitation to be the keynote speaker for the 2008 Desiring God Conference for Pastors, February 4-6, in Minneapolis. The tentative theme is “The Pastor as Father and Son.” Carson will address fatherhood and sonship in the Trinity, in the family, and in the church. Both Pastor Piper and Dr. Carson will speak about the significant and lasting effects of their own fathers in their lives--Carson during his keynote addresses and Piper in his biographical lecture. Pastors will be encouraged to bring both their sons and their fathers. The pastoral and missions speakers are pending.

In addition, the venue for the conference has changed. Instead of meeting in the hotel (as we have done for the past five years), the 2008 conference will move to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Those who have attended our National Conferences will be familiar with this spacious, comfortable, and functional facility.

Please pray with us that God will bless all the preparations for this event.
