The 2010 Keach Conference is coming up this weekend (Friday evening-Saturday morning, September 24-25) at Christ Reformed Baptist Church. Two high caliber speakers (Tom Ascol and David Murray) will address a challenging and fruitful topic (the doctrine of creation). You can find the schedule details on the Reformed Baptist Fellowship of Virginia website and read an announcement on the Reformed Baptist Fellowship blog. Below is also some info on this year's and past conferences:
What is the Keach Conference?
This is an annual theology and ministry conference sponsored by the Reformed Baptist Fellowship of Virginia (a loose network of pastor and churches in Virginia). There is no cost for anyone to attend this event. This is the ninth year we have had such a gathering. For the past several years we have been taking chapters from the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689) in order. This year it is “Of Creation.” Lloyd Sprinkle of Sprinkle Publications also provides a book table at our meeting.
Where are we meeting?
We have met at various churches throughout Virginia. This year we are meeting at Christ Reformed Baptist Church, a church plant in Charlottesville.
What is the program like?
We meet on Friday evening at 6:30 pm and Saturday morning at 9:30 am. We will have prayer, Scripture reading, and singing psalms and hymns in each session along with teaching from our guest speakers. On Saturday we will also have a question and answer session.
