NEXT Conference Audio

May 27, 2009

NEXT is the new name for the New Attitude conference, a conference affiliated with Sovereign Grace Ministries and aimed primarily at young adults. Most of the audio from this year’s conference is available free of charge on their website now, with more still to come. This year’s speakers include C.J. Mahaney, Joshua Harris, D.A. Carson, Sinclair Ferguson, and Kevin DeYoung. Messages from previous conferences are also available. Access these messages here


HT: Tim Challies

The Sovereign Grace Pastors’ Conference audio is on-line (and so is audio from previous years’ conferences, which I didn’t know was available). The messages are here.

Also, I’ve updated the Together for the Gospel Audio post from a little while back now that audio from more of the break-out sessions is available. See that here.

HT: Justin Taylor

Entrusted with the Gospel“, the 2009 Gospel Coalition conference, was last week. The conference had an incredible line-up of speakers.

Justin Taylor:

The audio and video from The Gospel Coalition conference are now available online for free. Most of them are expositions of 2 Timothy:

The Audio from most of the worskshop sessions is also available:

Three of the sessions had corrupt audio, and the files are being worked on. It may be some time, however, before they become available:

  • Michael Bullmore, “The Functional Centrality of the Gospel”
  • Tim Savage, “Power in Weakness: The Heart of Gospel Ministry”
  • Scotty Smith, “A Biblical Theology of Worship: On Preference and Other Matters”


This conference is excellent, every year. Though primarily aimed at young adults (18-35), anyone can go. The theme this year is “Sin”, and the speakers are Rick Holland, Steve Lawson, John MacArthur, CJ Mahaney, and John Piper. Check out the trailer below:

Roles, Goals, and Scheduling

December 13, 2008

C.J. Mahaney writes: “From my study of this topic and my observation of those I admire (and desire to emulate), it appears to me that being faithful, productive, and fruitful for the glory of God requires that I accomplish three things:

1. define my present God-given roles,
2. determine specific, theologically informed goals, and
3. transfer these goals into my schedule.”
