Advance the Church will once again host a tremendous conference. This year’s conference is entitled, “The Gospel is Revolutionary.”
From the Advance 2011 Website: Gospel: Is it possible that the reason the Church has lost its credibility and prophetic voice is that its Christians no longer believe the Gospel? The Gospel turned the ancient world of the Apostles on its head. It transformed the most unlikely of people into fervent ambassadors for God, while making enemies of both the secular and religious establishments. In contrast, the Church in many places today has become a part of a dying tradition that neither challenges the culture nor attracts the skeptic. Even in movements founded on Biblical truth, a pervasive legalism and moralism has eclipsed the explosive power of what God did for the world in Christ. There is only one thing that can restore the revolutionary power of God to the Church: the Gospel. The Church is in a moment of crisis. The Gospel is our only hope!
Join Advance the Church in May to hear from incredible speakers including Tim Keller, Alan Hirsch, Eric Mason, Danny Akin and others as they engage this growing and concerning issue, and discuss how the Church can recover the Gospel: the power that makes Christianity revolutionary. Advance11 is for anyone interested in the Church, advancing the Gospel, or understanding Biblical Christianity. Whether you are a pastor, community group leader, college student, churchgoer, or skeptic, we encourage you to join us.

Potential Questions for B21 Panel:
- Do we have to sacrifice being relevant to be faithful or vice versa?
- Do I have to go to “church” to be a Christian?
- Is it true that we are the church?
- How should we go about determining what we do in corporate worship? For instance, should we congregationally sing “secular” songs?
- What’s the deal with spontaneous baptisms?
- What should our main focus be in corporate worship?
- Is corporate worship for believers or non-believers? Should every sermon be evangelistic?
- Should churches exercise corporate church discipline and should a church go about instituting that?
- Topical vs. Book series?
- Technological pros and cons?
- Is small group necessary or just attendance of corporate worship?
- How much should a church “cater” to their members and how much should they intentionally avoid this to send their people out?
- When should you bring about change in a church when they are doing something they shouldn’t be doing in church?
REMEMBER TO REGISTER FOR THE ATC CONFERENCE TO BE A PART OF THE B21 PANEL
Baptist21 would like to make our readers aware of 2 upcoming events hosted by Vintage21 and Advance the Church. First, they will host Theological Development Seminars that will take place at Vintage21 during the Fall and Spring. This will be a series of Saturday seminars taught by Bruce Ware, Gregg Allison, and many more. These Seminars are open to everyone.
The first class is this Saturday, September 25th and will be taught by Dr. Bruce Ware. Dr. Gregg Allison will teach the next Seminar on Saturday, October 23rd. Classes begin Saturday mornings at 9am and end around 4pm.

The best part is that these seminars are free and snacks will be provided – You can register by emailing Tanner Griffith at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, Advance the Church will be holding an October Regional entitled:
From the Advance the Church Website: We all understand that every living thing multiplies; it’s part of the definition of life. But, it’s also at the core of the mission of the church– Jesus didn’t just call the church to grow. He called it to multiply. One of the struggles our generation is facing is that so few churches do multiply, and many churches don’t know how to begin multiplying. Obviously, as the gospel must advance, this is a problem we’re responsible to explore and work to resolve. Join us October 8, 2010 as Darrin Patrick, Chris Atwell, and Tyler Jones examine the need for churches to multiply and what it takes to become a church planting church.
