Monday Pre-Conference Breakout Schedule

1—4pm

There will be three different breakout tracks offered during the Pre-Conference. Movement between breakout tracks will not be offered. At registration, please choose the breakout track you would like to attend. Register early as seating is limited. See the list of speakers, titles and descriptions of each track below.

BREAKOUT TRACK 1 – CAMPUS AT THE CONFERENCE

Jared Compton | Campus at the Conference 

  • Could your Word-work use a tune-up? Has it been a while since you’ve sentence-diagrammed or phrased a text? Do you like thinking about how books of the Bible and the Bible itself fit together? If so, you’ll want to join Dr. Compton for this multi-part, hands-on, highly-interactive session, where we’ll showcase and practice the skills of reading and interpreting the Bible that we teach in our classrooms. We’ll also give away a 1-yr. Biblearc TOOLS subscription to everyone who attends.* Space is limited to 200. So sign up today!

BREAKOUT TRACK 2 – MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH | PREACHING

Jonathon Woodyard | See, Savor, Say: Preparing Sermons as a Christian Hedonist

  • Preaching is not fundamentally complicated. Yes, there are numerous factors to consider when thinking through what to say and how to say it. Yet, in this talk Jonathon Woodyard would like to suggest that all faithful, biblical preaching (i.e. saying) is simply an overflow of seeing and savoring. That is, preaching flows from the heart of a man who has seen great things in the Bible, has savored what he has seen, and stands before God’s people to say what he saw. Faithful preaching can be much more than this, but it shouldn’t be less.

Jonathan Parnell | Preaching as Worship and Preaching in Worship

  • The ultimate goal of preaching is to show people the glory of Jesus in the Bible so that they join you in worshiping him. That is what is meant by “preaching as worship.” But how does that fit with the other aspect of the church’s liturgy? This session will explore the significance of the sermon in the church’s worship, including the opportunity the sermon provides and what’s at stake if we get this wrong.

Lewis Guest, IV | The Pastor as Preacher: How Pastor-Preachers Feed God’s People Through Application

  • The pastor’s work in preaching is not over by explaining what the text meant. He must continue to serve his people by unpacking what the text means in application. The pastor-preacher richly feeds his flock as he faithfully applies Scripture to the situations of his people’s lives.

BREAKOUT TRACK 3 – MINISTRY IN THE WORLD | TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Tony Reinke | Harnessing the Lighting: Can a Big God and Big Tech Coexist

  • Benjamin Franklin’s introduction of the lightning rod immediately saved hundreds of churches and buildings from getting burned to the ground. His little device sparked human aspiration that would eventually become the electrical age we enjoy now. But the rod also sparked a theological debate. If we can harness his lightning, doesn’t God look weaker and less powerful? It remains one of the main dilemmas today. Can a big God and big tech coexist?

Samuel James | Digital Liturgies: How the Culture of the Internet Shapes Us

  • The social internet has expanded and transformed from a singular tool into an ambient habitat for our minds. As we pursue Christian wisdom, we must pay attention to the way technologies condition us into certain patterns of thought and emotion that undermine a God-shaped view of reality. Identifying Internet culture’s liturgies, and contrasting them against the embodied, evergreen perspective of the Bible is key to faithfulness in a digital age.

David Mathis | Reading the Times? Survival in a Day of Suffocating News

  • Christians are news people. Yet our news is not the news of this age — not today’s product of fleeting headlines, but yesterday’s timeless message that is both “good news” and the “old, old story.” How many of us today — in an effort to be good pastors and noble citizens — assume that “keeping up with the news” is virtuous and responsible, unaware of how it can be a subtle and destructive vice? We will consider the nature of daily news, its offerings and dangers, and how pastors and their churches might live with joy in an age of suffocating daily news.
