Unexpected Joys: A Trip to a Banner Ministers’ Conference
In the video below, join a pastor, a ruling elder, an intern, and a seminary student as they travel from Greenville, SC to a Banner Ministers’ Conference in Elizabethtown, PA.
The US Ministers’ Conference is an annual event in Elizabethtown, PA, where men gather from a variety of ministerial vocations to worship God and sit under the preaching of his Word.
The 2021 East Coast Conference will focus on the theme Devoted to Christ’s Church. The church is the epicentre of divine worship here on earth. Indeed, in Christ, as we gather each Lord’s Day, we are actually caught up into the heavenly realms as we offer our sacrifice of praise to God. It is the community in which the saints are equipped for service – the family in which we are spiritually nourished, shaped and moulded through ministering to ‘one another’ in order that we might minister to the world in all its need. Join with us as we savour afresh the glorious body of Christ. We look forward to seeing you there!

Flame is soon spent, graces that act most strongly require most influence, as being most subject to abatement; we sooner lose […]
