“To minister the Word to you is a great privilege, but also such a great responsibility.”

(Quote from a preacher to his audience)

 

Pastoral and other full-time spiritual ministry has its own challenges, difficulties, blessings and, at times, discouragements. As a result, those in this ministry have unique needs. The purpose of Grace Ministers’ Conferences is to help to fulfill this need.

 

What is the Conference?

A three-day conference with powerful and expository preaching from the Word of God by well-known and carefully chosen reformed minsters of the Word. The purpose is to reinforce spiritual truths that made the church of Christ healthy in the past, and at the same time, to present refreshing perspectives on God's Word that are relevant and meaningful for ministry in the 21st century.

 

Apart from this, there is also stimulated thinking and heart-warming fellowship. Click here to read what some attendees from the past said about this conference.

 

Who can attend?

This conference is designed for men who are ministers of the Gospel, and theological students who are preparing for ministry. Such brothers are strongly encouraged to bring their wives along so that they, as a couple, can have the privilege to both be spiritually fed and uplifted. Husbands and wives will also have the opportunity to interact and have fellowship with others who are in the same situation and face the same challenges.

Request to Elders and Deacons

We wish to kindly urge you to budget for and sponsor your pastor and his wife annually for this event. They minister to you on a regular basis all year long – please give them the opportunity to be ministered to, once per year. This will help them to return to their field of labour spiritually refreshed and encouraged. Commercial companies spent huge amounts of money to train their staff and keep them up to standard for their work. Let us as congregations and theological institutions do something similar on a much smaller scale so that those who minister to and with us, can be more effective in their work, by the grace of God.
