The Basics Conference

I am off to Cleveland in just a few moments. I’ll be attending The Basics Conference which is held at Parkside Church (which is, of course, pastored by Alistair Begg). Cleveland is somewhere around five hours away by car so I decided to drive rather than fly. I will be there until the conference wraps up Wednesday at around noon.

If you could remember me in prayer, I’d be grateful. Not only would do I ask for traveling mercies, but I’m also leading two different seminars at this year’s conference (an upgrade from the one I led last year). The first will deal with blogging (with quite a bit of overlap from last year’s seminar) and the other with discernment (as you might expect).

Speakers at this year’s conference are Alistair Begg, Jerry Bridges and Voddie Baucham. It promises to be a good event as it focuses on “the weighty responsibility, spiritual energy, exacting demands and increasing joy of ministry shaped by ironclad commitment to careful study and clear communication of the Bible.”

Check in later this afternoon or evening and I’ll begin to provide updates.
