Shepherd's Conference 2013

Every March, thousands of men—pastors, elders, deacons and lay leaders—gather at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, for the annual Shepherd's Conference. That time once again has arrived, and this year's attendance will be higher than it has ever been as over 3,500 men from around the world gather together to worship God, to hear His Word proclaimed, and to learn and plumb the depths of that Word. Nine hundred of those men will be attending for the first time. While many of us may be tempted to be jealous that we cannot also be joining in such a sweet time of learning, praise and fellowship, may we instead focus our energies on praying for those who are in attendance, and for those who will be teaching the Word of God over the course of the next few days.

Running from 6–10 March, the keynote speakers for the 2013 Shepherd's Conference are John MacArthur, Steve Lawson, Albert Mohler, Phil Johnson and Tom Pennington. Many other men also will be teaching seminars and breakout sessions throughout the week, however, and there is little doubt that each one of them would covet our prayers as they prepare to open up the Word of God for so many.

One of the wonderful and generous offerings of the Shepherd's Conference is that the general sessions are live streamed online for anyone to view. For those who are able, I encourage you to tune in, and to do so at the start of each session. You will not want to miss the amazing and beautiful sound of so many men lifting their voices in song as they praise our Lord! The schedule can be found here, and keep in mind that all times are PST.
