Looking Forward to May!


It's hard to believe, but we are once again coming up on another Banner of Truth Ministers' Conference, May 27-29, on the campus of Messiah College in Grantham, PA. I get to a number of conferences, and even with admitting my bias, I so appreciate the intimate fellowship of like-minded men in ministry that takes place at the Banner conference - men ministering to men, brother to brother, and interacting/fellowshipping around such spiritual nourishment that pours forth in that chapel building. And we're not just talking old guys here! Seminary students and guys in their first pastorate are really engaging with others who have been in the ministry for 30+ years. It's great!

Pastors, Elders, Deacons, Missionaries, Chaplains, Seminary Students ... here, read some of what I've gotten in the mail from guys who are returning again from last year:

"Three years ago I was invited to attend the Banner of Truth Conference by another minister - what a blessing it has been to me ever since.... It is where I go to sit under the sound preaching of the Word and have my soul fed in great abundance. This year was no disappointment."

"I consider the Banner Conference the highlight of my year and plan to be there! As a preacher we seldom get the time to sit under the Word as a live minister of the Gospel opens and applies it to our hearts. What a joy to sing with so many men and then fellowship around the mealtimes. Praying with brothers down by the river is another highlight I look forward to. I would not miss the conference for anything but the most sovereign providence of God."

"I have been there about twenty (20) straight years and, the Lord willing, I plan to come again this year."

"I've been looking forward to this conference from the minute I got in my car at the close of last year's conference. It was my first year and I fell in love with everything that went on in those wonderfully Christ-focused three days. I envied the stories of those men who had been attending for a lifetime and quietly looked forward to the day when I'll be able to wear the coveted Banner polo shirt from decades back. :-) "

"YES, I am coming, so add me to your list! I would walk to Pennsylvania to attend the Banner Conference. It is the mainstay of my collegial fellowship and my primary time to sit under the preaching of the Word of God each year. And I cannot begin to find the words to share how vital Banner books are to my soul and my ministry."

Like-minded men in ministry, coming together in a relatively small gathering, enjoying the nourishment from a bountiful spiritual smorgasbord from the Word of God and the sweet fellowship of dear brothers in Christ. Consider it this year, would you?

I may have missed this but will there be any live blogging or synopsis writings for those that can't attend?

Hearing the word preached for several days in a row by gifted expositors is a constant reminder that man does not live by bread alone. This will be my sixth straight year at the banner, and as far as it is possible with me, I will keep attending many years in the future.
