In just one month, from October 6-9, 2009 in Jackson, TN, Union University is hosting one of the more interesting conferences to be held in conservative Christian circles in 2009-10 (yes, I’m on the school calendar). It’s entitled “Southern Baptists, Evangelicals, and the Future of Denominations” and it is worth attendance and attention.
I would highly encourage those who can attend this conference to sign up. It’s just $85 per person until September 15, 2009 (register here). The conference will feature leading evangelical lights like David Dockery, Al Mohler, Timothy George, Danny Akin, D. Michael Lindsay, Duane Litfin of Wheaton, Ed Stetzer, and many more. It looks like a terrific lineup, one that will help to form an understanding of the three major subjects outlined in the event title. Notable blogger and friend Trevin Wax will be covering the conference.
As many will know, Union University has been in the vanguard of those who are thinking critically about the future of the SBC, denominations and denominational identities. This conference only cements the school’s position.
