A Men's Conference on Practical Holiness

I'm bursting with excitement for the upcoming Fellowship in the Gospel Men's Conference. The keynote speaker is Dr. Bryan Chapell, chancellor & professor of practical theology at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He is also a renown expository preacher who carefully handles the Scriptures, deftly connects the fallen problem of the biblical characters with his listeners, and gracefully shepherds them to hope in the Savior.You may know him most from his wildly-helpful book, Christ-Centered Preaching.

However, I have asked Dr. Chapell to speak to us on the great need for Christians to be actively pursuing holiness while avoiding a legalistic approach, to pursue holiness by grace, which happens to be the title of another of his books. The conference theme is Standing & Striving: a Faith that Transforms. Come and enjoy three keynote addresses on the dual truths of standing firm in the faith of what Jesus has accomplished for you and striving to apply that faith in a practical way leading to practical sanctification. You will no doubt recognize the language of Philippians 1:27 as the genesis of the conference theme.

If you are not familiar with Fellowship in the Gospel, it is a gospel-centered conference designed to minister specifically to the local churches of Michigan. This is the 3rd biannual conference which meets on the years in-between T4G. The dates are May 3-4, 2013. Early registration pricing is available until March 1st. You can register online at

If you've never attended, you should visit the website ( and sample past conference keynote addresses or the many rich and helpful past break-out sessions. For instance, you could listen to:

  • Pastor Josh Waltz (Preaching Pastor at Parker Hill Bible Fellowship in Colorado) who spoke in 2009 on Gospel-Centered Leadership OR
  • Rico Tice (Associate Pastor at All Souls in England) who spoke in 2011 on Recovering the Gospel: the Ancient Message of Power & Hope.
The goal of the conference is to offer preaching, teaching and other resources that are painstakingly screened and selected so that what is offered to the men is distinctly gospel-centered. Along the way, we hope you will develop lasting and wonderful friendships in the faith. So come join us May 3-4, 2012 and Fellowship in the Gospel!

In Christ,

Jeff McKeever
Pastor of Men's Ministry
Berean Baptist Church of Livonia
