Conference Speakers


  • Ligon Duncan

    Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III is the Chancellor/CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary and the John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology. He received an MDiv from Covenant Theological Seminary and earned a PhD from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He has authored many books, and is married to Anne, with whom he has a daughter named Sarah Kennedy and a son named Jennings.

  • Kevin Twit

    Rev. Kevin Twit is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and Covenant Theological Seminary. He served as a Pastor at Christ Community Church for 8 years, and has been the RUF Campus Minister at Belmont University since 1995. In 1999 Kevin began Indelible Grace Music with some of his students. Kevin is married to Wendy and they have 3 children, including a daughter they adopted from China in 2005.

  • Matthew Smith & Indelible Grace

    Indelible Grace Music grew out of ministering to college students, primarily through Reformed University Fellowship (RUF). As these students began to taste more of the depth of the gospel and the richness of the hymn tradition, many began to join the music of their culture with the words of our forefathers and a movement was born. Our hope is to be a voice calling our generation back to something rich and solid and beyond the fluff and the trendy.

Breakout I

  

1. Christian Experience in the Hymns of Anne Steele taught by Kevin Twit


18th century hymnwriter Anne Steele was largely forgotten before Indelible Grace reintroduced her hymns to the world with their first record in 2000. Her hymns of lament and struggle contain some of the richest expressions of faith in hymnody and have much to teach the church today.



2. Living All of Live as a Worshipper of God taught by Ligon Duncan


As Christians, we are called (and privileged!) to worship the one true and living God in two distinct ways: (1) as we gather, under and according to, his Word and (2) everywhere else in all of life! This message will focus on how we can glorify God in the whole of life. As believers who say that “man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever,” this is an exceedingly important and practical matter.



3. Healthy Tensions: Striving for Biblical Balance in Worship taught by Ronnie Morris


Is worship of God to be solemn and reverent or free and celebratory? Should it engage our mind and intellect or our heart and emotions? Should the church stay rooted in the proven songs and liturgies of the past or explore and create new songs and liturgies for the present generation? This breakout will consider these questions and more in effort to discover and apply what the Bible teaches about healthy tensions in balanced worship.



4. Heart Preparation for Worship taught by David Sinclair


In his commentary on Joshua, Ralph Davis asks the question, "Do you prepare yourself for the practice of the public worship of God? If we are not impressed with the grandeur of the living God in public worship, is it because we have not prepared ourselves to see Him as such?" In this seminar, we will discuss the importance of heart preparation throughout the week in order that we might behold more of the beauty, glory and grace of our Savior when we gather together on the Lord's Day.




Breakout II

  

5. Why We Still Need Hymns taught by Kevin Twit


Are hymns still relevant in our postmodern world? Worship is formative and this has profound implications for the kinds of songs we sing. We will discuss the valuable lessons of hymnody for today’s church.



6. Emotionally Honest Worship taught by Matthew Smith


Many churches struggle with worship, leading to divided communities and disconnected hearts. This breakout session explores how hymns engage the imagination, intellect, will, and emotions to help people become fully alive, wholehearted worshipers of the living God. Includes time for Q&A discussion.



7. Worship in the Home taught by Josh Jones


God has entrusted parents with an essential responsibility to lead, model, and teach children to be worshippers of Christ. Come be encouraged and equipped with practical ways of shepherding children in your home.



8. Worship: Glorifying God and Enjoying God Forever taught by Rob Emmons


A sweep of the Bible’s multi-layered teaching on worship, from its preparatory phase in the Old Testament to its present fulfillment in Christ and future consummation in the New Creation.
