What is it?
Fellowship in the Gospel. It began as a biennial men's conference . . . and now includes a women's conference as well.
Fellowship in the Gospel. It is what the speakers and the organizers of the conference share in. It's what we hope the men and women who attend will immerse themselves in during their respective conferences and will be better equipped to do after they depart.
Fellowship in the Gospel. It is what we all need: exhorting one another in the truth of Colossians 2:6 "[A]s you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him." This statewide conference is designed to take place in between T4G years and provide local churches with gospel-centered teaching, resources and fellowship. You can expect free resources, a discounted bookstore, multiple opportunities to pray and fellowship and meals provided.
When is it?
Friday, October 6, 2017 – Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Union Lake Baptist Church in Commerce, Michigan.
Who will speak?
Our Keynote Speakers will be Cindy Cochrum and Susan Jahns. Together they have led a renown women's ministry at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois for decades. We are so pleased to have these exemplary teachers come to Fellowship in the Gospel Women! They are committed to the Scriptures as the vehicle by which God eternally changes women's lives. They are convinced by the testimony of the Scripture and their first-hand experience that the expository teaching is how transformation takes place in God's economy. Come and be encouraged and equipped. Come Fellowship in the Gospel.
What is it about?
We are very excited about the Conference Theme . . .
The Word is Sufficient
Keynote Speakers Cindy Cochrum and Susan Jahns will be giving three needed plenary session addresses on the biblical necessities for a successful women's ministry: (1) The Need for Expositional Teaching (by Susan Jahns), (2) Characteristics of a Faithful Teacher (by Cindy Cochrum), and (3) Foundations of a Faithful Message (by Cindy Cochrum). May our churches be strengthened by the grace of Christ as these messages go out to the women of our local churches!
Whether you currently lead a women's ministry, teach women's Bible studies or just love the Word, come Fellowship in the Gospel on October 6-7, 2017.
Break-Out Sessions will be offered on the Sufficiency of the Word in Evangelism, Discipleship & Training Teachers. Everyone will hear all three break-out's.
Why This Conference?
Union Lake Baptist Church in Commerce Township, Michigan will be hosts two-day conference for men (and now for women!) known as Fellowship in the Gospel. The idea for this conference was born out of the great fellowship that many from our area had at the T4G Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. T4G is a biennial conference with great gospel-centered teaching by teachers like C.J. Mahaney, Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, Albert Mohler, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, and John MacArthur.
We were unaware of any conference or event focusing on the Gospel in our region, and we simply could not wait for two years to fellowship around the power and centrality of the gospel! Therefore, we developed a two-day conference in 2009 called Fellowship in the Gospel, with the hope that we could help our regional brothers (and now sisters!) in Christ to be exposed to the life-changing power of the gospel. We believe it is the key to preaching and teaching, the key to relationships, and the key to an ongoing life of transformation.
