CBSM Mini-Conference: Persecuted Church – on the Doctrine of Christ

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.

Secret Church: Six Hours of Sermons?

secret-church

You heard me right.  This last Friday, I took my KTL ministry to “Secret Church” at The Church At Brookhills in Birmingham, AL this past Friday night for Good Friday.  What is so cool about 4 middle schoolers, 6 high schoolers, a college student, a youth pastor, and one cool dad enjoying an evening together?  “Secret Church” is a one-night conference held from 6pm – midnight where the pastor preaches 4 sessions for somewhere over an hour each.  This pastor is the man, the myth, the legend…Dr. David Platt.  He’s totally one of my favorite pastors.  This cat is only 30 years old with more degrees than I have hair!  The dude, Dr. David, is super solid theologically, super engaging in his communication, and he just loves preaching on a super awesome God.  This particular Secret Church conference was specially on the cross.  That’s right, almost six full hours of preaching…just on the event in which we call the cross.  And that, my dear and gracious readers, is why its so amazing that we all enjoyed an evening together!
