Announcing the Knox500 Quincentenary Conference in Scotland

from Jun 26, 2014 Category: Events

I am excited to announce that OnePassion Ministries will be hosting the Knox500 Quincentenary Conference (1514–2014) on November 1–5, 2014 in Scotland.

These meetings are a series of national events designed to commemorate and celebrate the life, work, and vision of the great Scottish reformer, John Knox.

Our desire is to reintroduce the message and ministry of Knox to a new generation. Largely forgotten in the twenty-first century, this bold leader was the driving force behind the birth of the Reformed church in Scotland. He was a seminal figure as a writer, theologian, reformer, and preacher of God’s Word. Our aim is to revisit the influence of Knox in an effort to restore in these days biblical preaching, renew transcendent worship, and replenish Christ-centered discipleship within the church. Further, our hope is to reignite the hearts of believers, ministers, and students with a vision for reaching Scotland with the gospel.

Dr. Iain D. Campbell, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson, and special guest Rev. Paul Rees will join me in Edinburgh on Saturday, November 1, delivering messages and lectures on the lessons of the Scottish Reformation. The unique focus will be upon the extraordinary life and energetic work of this noted reformer. Attention will be given to what we can learn from Knox for today.

In addition, The Institute for Expository Preaching will be hosting conferences on November 3 at Edinburgh Theological Seminary in Edinburgh and November 5 at The Tron Church in Glasgow. Learn more about The Institute for Expository Preaching.

Knox500 is welcome to all Christians, including lay-people, pastors, missionaries, and students of any age or denomination. We also welcome anyone with interest in the theological, historical, and cultural significance of John Knox.

May God use these meetings to empower His people for a new reformation.
