Title: “Small Churches; Large Community Blessings” Many PCA TE’s who pastor smaller solo churches have found ways to have local community and international Kingdom impact by way of the Chaplaincy.  The ministries of volunteer Law Enforcement, Fire Department, Hospital, Corrections and Hospice Chaplains will be shared as examples to other church Elders as examples of out to also effectively utilize these outreach and community service ministries in their smaller churches and communities.  Also, many smaller PCA churches take on periodic projects to support our military personnel with book and bible distributions, and personalized greeting cards and gift packages to “troops” for major holidays.  We will share stories about how these churches have large Kingdom impact even though their churches are small.

Dr. Peter Lillback photo4:30 – 5:30 PM:

Title: “The PCA and Persecution: Not if, but when – are you prepared?” Churches pressured to host an lgbt wedding? Tax-exemption status threatened?  Negative effects due to your theological stands or worship practices?  PCA daughters are drafted into combat situations in the military? Persecution often begins against those who are most public and vocal and moves on from there.  Come and listen to Dr. Peter Lillback, President of Westminster Seminary, Mr. David Nammo, Executive Director and CEO of the Christian Legal Society, PCA Chaplains, and other invited guests who will speak from personal experiences of religious liberty issues and how they affect churches.  Learn from those on the front lines in order to better prepare your church and its leaders for potential attacks.
