We are looking forward to having you join us in Greenville, SC Dec 16-17, 2021 on the campus of Bob Jones University for The Foundations Conference. We are praying for God's special blessing to be upon us all as we gather together for the fourth time to focus our hearts and attention on the matters of prayer and preaching.
Please note this conference will not be live-streamed.
The church is distracted.
With all that is happening in our fast-paced society, the temptation for the church is to become sidetracked with fighting individual, secondary issues.
When the apostles in the first century church faced mounting perplexities and distractions in the work they found it necessary to give themselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word (Acts 6:4). We believe there is a need to return to these same foundations of ministry in our generation.

Give ourselves to the one thing.
The Psalmist captured it exactly when he said, "One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple." Psalm 27:4.
We are all created with an innate desire to behold that which is glorious. We will cross the globe in search of that majestic mountain range or that perfect sunset. We are creatures that cannot resist looking at breathtaking beauty. But what can be more beautiful than the love of an infinitely holy God in the person of Jesus Christ for us poor, vile, undeserving sinners? And what does it mean to "enquire in his temple?" This refers to prayer. To pray, fellowship, and sup with Jesus Himself in "the house of prayer" should be our chiefest delight.
So there it is. The one thing. What is it? To behold God's beauty in His Word and to enjoy God's presence in the place of prayer.
|The Foundations Conference will be held on the beautiful campus of Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC for the first time.|
We are very excited about this special event as we have worked hard to assemble an incredibly unique combination of powerful speakers including Steven Lawson, Clarence Sexton, Joel Beeke, John Vaughn, Todd Friel, and Armen Thomassian. It is a rare occurrence to have such diverse men all together at a single event so it should be a special time of Christian unity and friendship.
All sessions will take place in Stratton Hall, conveniently located in the Welcome Center where the refreshments and book tables are located. It provides ample comfortable seating for the two days that we will meet.
Joining us at the conference will be Banner of Truth and they have graciously agreed to offer generous discounts for conference attendees. We hope you will take advantage of their book tables during the break times each day.
Lunches and refreshments will be provided on-location for both days. The lunch will be a full hot lunch bar in the Davis Room. In addition, every attendee will receive a special, handmade, commemorative conference pottery mug. It is not your typical mug!
