We'd like to ask you mark your calendars now for the 17th annual Auburn Avenue Pastors Conference here in Monroe. The dates are January 5 - 7, 2015. Our featured speakers for this year will be Douglas Wilson, pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho; Ken Myers, the founder and host of the Mars Hill Audio Journal, Ruckersville, Virginia; Peter J. Leithart, director of the Theopolis Institute (formerly Trinity House Institute) in Birmingham, Alabama; and James B. Jordan, founder of Biblical Horizons in Niceville, Florida.
The theme of the conference is "Salt & Light" and what it means to be the church in a culture that is growing more and more corrupt and decayed by sin and unbelief. Our speakers will address this topic from various angles in an effort to equip pastors and officers to lead the Church during this difficult time.
The conference is always thought provoking and provides an opportunity for fellowship and discussion, not only with our speakers, but with other pastors and leaders who attend which is an encouraging and refreshing time.
In addition to our featured speakers, Doug Wilson's wife, Nancy, will be speaking to wives and young women in a special session (free of charge) for women only during the afternoon on Tuesday January 6.
