2014 UK Ministers’ Conference
The Banner Leicester Ministers’ Conference is arranged for men who are (or who have been) in pastoral charges,
or who are theological students at present in training for the ministry, and for men who are serving in missionary work at home or overseas.
Tuesday 22 April – Thursday 24 April 2014.
University of Leicester, Gilbert Murray Hall, Manor Road, Leicester LE2 2LG.
Speakers: Andrew Davies, David Meredith, Garry Williams, Norman McAuley, O. Palmer Robertson, Iain Murray.
The full conference fee for a Tuesday–Thursday resident is £140*.
We realise that many Ministers are on tight budgets and we do not want people to be unable to attend the conference due to the cost. If you are unable to afford the £140 fee, but could pay between £100 and £140, then please feel free to pay what you are able. In the event that you are not able to afford this, please contact John Rawlinson at the Edinburgh office; we really don’t want anyone to be unable to come due to financial constraints.
*This represents a subsidy of about £15 per person from the Trust. If you are in a position where you are able to pay the unsubsidised cost, we would appreciate that.
Those that delight in praising God themselves cannot but desire that others also may be brought to praise him, that he may have the honour of it and they may have the benefit of it. It is a prayer . . . that they might be converted and brought into the church, and then they would have a disposition to praise God, the living and true God, and not the dumb and dunghill deities they had worshipped, Dan. 5:4. Then their hard thoughts of God would be silenced, and they would see him, in the gospel glass, to be love itself, and the proper object of praise. – Matthew Henry on Psalm 67:3.
