So in less than 12 hours our church is hosting the inaugural STAND for the Gospel bible conference. The keynote speaker is Conrad Mbewe from Zambia, and I just know it’s going to be a weekend of solid, convicting, gospel-centred preaching as well as a great opportunity to meet and fellowship with like-minded Christians from all over NZ.
I’m serving as one of the worship leaders during the weekend along with the rest of the immensely committed music, sound and tech teams. From the music side at least, I know we’ll be singing a mix of enduring hymns of the faith, together with some of our newer Christ-exalting favourites. By God’s grace all the elements will come together; it will be an honour and a joy to bring Him glory this weekend!
If you’re interested come on down this weekend and check out one of the sessions for yourself (the schedule is here). Particularly on Saturday, there’s a full day of sessions, workshops and a panel discussion. In addition, Denys from Gracebooks NZ in Hastings is bringing his bookshop up to Auckland (well, the books in his bookshop at least!).
With all this on offer, hopefully I’ll see some of you this weekend! I will be tweeting (at www.twitter.com/wchong) using the hashtag #STAND4tg2010.
Soli deo gloria!
