Resurgence of the Local Church
Advance09 was a particularly special for me. I didn’t make the conference, but I have listened to the presentations. It focused on the resurgence of the South. If the South needs anything, it is a resurgence of reformed and missional influence. I pray that one day this will come.
For now, we suffer the influence of pop-churches, seeker-sensitive programs, self-glorifying teachings, and our most prized characteristic, best-life-now-mindedness. Hopefully, the Lord will send preachers like the ones featured at this conference to spread the Kingdom here. Enjoy these videos posted by Re:Lit (a ministry of Mars Hill Church).
