I am off to WorshipGod 09 today with a few others from the congregation. I look forward to meeting up with a couple other pastors from the area when we get there as well. If last year was any indication of what to expect this year, I have high hopes for an excellent conference.
You can see the speaker line-up here including John Piper, Thabiti Anyabwile, and C. J. Mahaney. I am also personally looking forward to having Shai Linne there this year. He is a rap artist who is top notch when it comes to theologlically rich and gospel-centered lyrics.
Not to be overlooked is Donald Whitney. I appreciated his seminar on family worship last year. Although he is not doing any of the main sessions, he will be doing several seminars. The website lists this bio for him:
Since 2005, Don has been Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, where he also serves as Senior Associate Dean. He is the founder and president of The Center for Biblical Spirituality. He is the author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, How Can I Be Sure I’m A Christian, Spiritual Disciplines Within the Church, Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health, Simplify Your Spiritual Life, and Family Worship.
