“Reaching the World for Christ” Conference

Over the weekend, Dr. Gabe Fluhrer (a very good, powerful speaker, who is Derek Thomas’s assistant pastor in Columbia, South Carolina) and I spoke three times each for a conference on evangelism titled “Reaching the World for Christ,” sponsored by the Heritage Reformed Congregation of Kinnelon, New Jersey. Dr. Fluhrer spoke on “The ‘Must’ of Evangelism,” on “Defending the Faith,” and on “Living in Hope.” I spoke on “Calvin’s Evangelism,” on “Being All Things to All Men,” and on “The Spirit’s Age and Revival.” It was a nostalgic time for us as this church is part of the church that I served for 5.5 years 33 years ago, so it was great re-connecting with many old friends, including the two hospitable couples who hosted us, Dave and Gerda VandeVrede and John and Deb VanVugt. Here we are with two former PRTS graduates and their spouses and children who are serving in this area.
