The Mission of God

This week the blog is sponsored by The G3 Conference.

In January, we will gather in Atlanta for the annual G3 Conference—a theology conference for the Church (not just pastors and church leaders). This year could potentially be the most important conference we’ve had in recent years as the theme will center on missions. The reason for the importance is based on the shallow and often misunderstood definition of missions—confusing the role of the local church in the process of missions, and much more. We will attempt to cover issues and topics related to the following:

  • What is the mission of God?
  • How is God reaching the nations?
  • How is the Great Commission applicable to us in our present day?
  • What role should the local church take in the work of missions?
  • Cross-cultural missions.
  • Indigenous church planting.
  • Preaching and missions.
  • The ministry of reconciliation.

Important Reminder: Rates Increase on September 25th. Register before in order to save $40 per ticket.

  • Dates: January 17-19 (English Conference)
  • *Spanish Conference: January 16

What to Expect as an Attendee to the G3 Conference:

Great Fellowship: One of the great realities of the G3 Conference testimonies is the fact that each year men and women show up in Atlanta to encourage one another in the faith. One of the greatest parts of the annual event is the deep and rich fellowship that takes place through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

God Exalting and Christ-Centered Worship: From the very beginning, the G3 Conference had a high view of worship that was incorporated into the conference. Devon Kauflin will be leading in the singing of the gospel throughout the weekend and it’s always a thrill to worship God in song with thousands of other men and women who are exulting in the God who saves sinners.

Faithful Preaching: Throughout the weekend, between 12-14 main sessions will be held in the main conference hall. That’s a lot of preaching! From the beginning, the G3 Conference has placed a heavy emphasis upon the preaching of God’s Word. At the center of a church’s life, it’s mission, and it’s worship must be faithful, biblical preaching. We seek to model that in how we organize the G3 Conference.

Breakout Sessions: Throughout the weekend, different breakout sessions will be centered on issues related to the theme of missions and other practical and theological subjects that provide the attendee the opportunity to customize their G3 experience by attending various different sessions. There will be sessions specifically designed for women too which is another commitment of the G3 Conference.

Exhibit Hall Resources: Attending a conference can be a valuable experience in many ways, and that’s often connected to the exhibit hall. It is our desire to have good ministries and organizations represented in the exhibit hall each year in order to allow attendees the opportunity to make vitally important connections that will aid in the discipleship and mission goals of their local church.

Bookstore: This year we are delighted to announce that the bookstore of the 2019 G3 Conference will be newly redesigned and organized to maximize the needs of the attendees. You can expect to have great opportunities to add to your theological library at discounted prices and look for book signing opportunities by conference speakers mixed into the bookstore this year as well.
