Conclusion of the Puritan Reformed Conference

The Puritan Reformed Seminary Conference at our church in Grand Rapids is now over. This morning’s sessions ended on a high note, as Dr. Hensworth Jonas (photo 1) expounded on the grace of our perseverance from the rich text of Isaiah 51:6 and Dr. Jerry Bilkes proclaimed the grace of everlasting glory from Revelation 22:1-5. The 300 people that attended our conference hailed from more about 25 states all over America and several foreign countries. God was surely in the midst of us in a wonderful way in these days. If you were unable to make it to the sessions, you will surely want to listen to all of the addresses. We hope to have them available on our website and/or the seminary website within a week to ten days.

Puritan Reformed Conference Day 2

Yesterday was a long and good day for the 300 attendees at our Puritan Reformed conference, concluding with a stimulating QA session with all the speakers, chaired by Dr. Jerry Bilkes (photo 1). Seven topics on the grace of salvation, including the grace of Christ, regeneration, faith, justification, adoption, sanctification, etc., we’re expounded and applied by Drs. Jonathan Gibson, Adriaan Neele (photo 2), David McWilliams, Daniel Timmer, and Hensworth Jonas. Mary and I also enjoyed hosting several attendees in our home for dinner (photo 3). Book sales and fellowship were both robust.

This morning the Puritan Reformed Conference concludes with Hensworth Jones speaking on the grace of perseverance at 9:00 a.m.and Jerry Bilkes speaking on everlasting grace at 10:45a.m. Join us in person at Heritage Reformed Congregation, 540 Crescent NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan if you can, or by live-streaming here.
