Preconference on Gender

Prior to the DG Pastors Conference on February 4, there will be a preconference on gender, featuring two outstanding thinkers on the topic: Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt, coauthor of the book, Women's Ministry in the Local Church.

John Piper described the Desiring God conference as "a way of building into their manhood a sense of what a great calling it is to be a man, a father, and a leader of the church." David Kotter, executive director for CBMW, agrees and adds, "The preconference also enables them to catch a vision for one of the greatest challenges facing pastors today: the debate over biblical manhood and womanhood."

Each attendee will receive a free copy of the book.

Online registration for the half-day Conference is $20.
