On Saturday, October 17th Providence PCA in Fayetteville, NC will be hosting a one day conference entitled “Building an Old School Church”.
In an age when many churches seek to mimic the culture as closely as possible, Old School Presbyterian churches are committed to the principle that God’s Unchanging Word and not the preferences of the age should be our rule and guide when it comes to every aspect of our ministry. An Old School Church therefore is self-consciously simple and biblical and believes that the primary calling of the church is to preach the Gospel in a manner that is warm, winsome, and aimed both at men’s minds and hearts. It is our hope that this conference would encourage the planting of new churches and the reforming of existing churches along “Old School” lines.
The Speakers will be Pastor Bill Harrell, who planted Immanuel PCA church in Norfolk Virginia, Pastor Irfon Hughes, and Pastor Andrew Webb who planted Providence PCA church, in Fayetteville.
The lectures will include:
What is an Old School Church?
A Workman not Ashamed: Survey of a Church-Planting Ministry
The Importance of Pastoral Visitation in Building a Church
Pitfalls in Church Planting and How to Avoid Them
Life from Death: The Reviving Ministry of William Still
The highlight of the conference will be Pastor Harrell’s closing lecture on the Ministry of William Still, a famous Scottish Presbyterian pastor whom Pastor Harrell studied under. The one day conference, which will begin at 9:00 AM, is FREE and help finding someplace to stay (particularly if you are a seminary student) is available.
