Advance 09 (pt 1)



I'm attending Advance 09 this week in Durham. Yesterday was awesome and I am sure today and tomorrow will be more of the same. If you want to listen to the lectures from yesterday (4/4) go here. And the Matt Chandler lecture plus the panel Q&A is here.

Driscoll is speaking on, "What is the Church?" (You wouldn't think we need this lecture but WE DO!! There is so much confusion over the word "church" we all need this message. Driscoll was about 30 minutes in and suggested something kind of revolutionary to the Southern way of doing things that shocked one dude so much he audibly said "What!?" and all 3,000 of us heard him. Driscoll's rapid fire response was to say, "and that was the Baptist dude." It was hilarious! (Maybe you had to be there...listen to the podcast and maybe you will think it is as funny as I did.)
Tyler Jones is speaking on, "The Decline and Resurgence of the Church"
Bryan Chapell is speaking on "Christ Centered Preaching."
Matt Chandler rarely discussed his topic... he was all over the board, but it is great content and very funny!!

I'll summarize some of my notes in a later post.
