3 Christian Conferences You Might Want to Attend

Leave a comment

My wife Tammy and I enjoy growing spiritually by attending Christian conferences. Here are three conferences we have attended that we would recommend to you:

Ligonier National Conference. R.C. Sproul, who went home to be with the Lord in 2017, was a theological mentor to me. Over the years we have attended a number of Ligonier regional conferences, and since 1997, we have tried to attend the annual Ligonier National Conference in Orlando, Florida each year. For me, the conference is a wonderful break from the late winter weather in central Illinois and a little taste of Heaven. I’ve been introduced to many excellent speakers at the conference such as Sinclair Ferguson, John Piper, Alistair Begg, John MacArthur and many others. The 2023 National Conference, with a theme of “Stand Firm”, will be held March 23-25. Speakers include Sinclair Ferguson. Voddie Baucham, Michael Reeves, Derek Thomas and more.

Sing! Getty Worship Conference. This conference, led by Keith and Kristyn Getty, is a unique experience of teaching and singing songs written specifically for congregational singing. We have attended the last three conferences available in-person and plan to attend the 2022 conference to be held September 4-7 in Nashville, Tennessee. The theme will be “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death: Prayers and Confessions”. Speakers and artists scheduled to appear will be the Gettys, John Piper, John MacArthur, Andrew Peterson, CityAlight, Bryan Chapell and many more.

The Gospel Coalition National Conference. We attended the 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, and really enjoyed it. The 2023 conference will again be held in Indianapolis September 25-27. The theme will be “For All of Life, For All the World: Hope for Pilgrims for the Book of Exodus”. Featured speakers will be John Piper, David Platt, Ligon Duncan, J.D. Greear and more.

These are three conferences we have attended and would recommend to you.
