As Ireland has moved more and more into a post-Christian culture, increasingly removed from the Christianity of the past, and more confused about the Gospel, participation in church life has been in steady decline and left Christians ill prepared to engage the changing culture.
Advance The Church is a conference for church leaders to be encouraged by the gospel of Jesus so we can lead and plant healthy churches across the island of Ireland. We will examine the importance of theological clarity, missional innovation, and cultural engagement. We are part of the Church and the gates of hell will not not prevail against it. Now is a time for the Church to advance.
Our main Speaker will be Jared C. Wilson. Jared is the Director of Content Strategy for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Managing Editor of For The Church, Midwestern's site for gospel-centered resources.
He has authroed many books including: Gospel Wakefulness, The Pastors Justification, and The Prodigal Church. He is also a contributor at The Gospel Coalition
