Yes, we get this idea from Pastor David Platt and his church Brookhills where he preaches for nearly 6 HOURS on doctrine and theology. We’ve been a few times for that, and its amazing. Platt gets it from his missions experiences where foreign churches study God’s Word in secret (so they don’t get killed) for hours (so they can learn as much as possible). This is CBSM’s second attempt, and we’ve learned to put it during a school break so that students can stay out late with no school the next day.
The reason we want to continue Persecuted Church conferences is because we believe that students desire a deeper study of God’s Word, and that they want to be different from the world in the way they live their lives for Jesus. The theme of our Persecuted Church Conference this time is “The Doctrine of Christ.” We haven’t taken a specific look at the Doctrine of Christ for almost 3 years now. So its time we take a deep look at the person and worship of Jesus again. All teenagers from our area are invited. If you’re coming, make sure you bring a friend to this epic night of worship and the Word. Here is the schedule for the night:
