2008 Desiring God Pastors Conference Roundup

Today was the last day of the 2008 Desiring God Conference for Pastors, held at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minnesota. This year’s theme was: The Pastor as Father and Son. The speakers were D. A. Carson, Crawford Lorritts, Greg Livingstone and John Piper.

These are great conferences with great times of worship mixed with great speakers delivering great messages. Not to mention the great fellowship you enjoy with other pastors! I have attended in the past and followed the conference closely when I could not attend.

Desiring God has been blogging the conference, and you can find a roundup of all this year’s conference posts here, including summaries of the messages. They are also posting the audio to the sessions for free. The messages are all good, but I would especially recommend Carson’s. And don’t miss John Piper’s tribute to his recently deceased evangelist father.

  1. That message from Crawford Lorittis particularly jazzed me as well. I’ve enjoyed this conference over the past few years and they never fail to deliver such rich preaching.

    Gunny – So you got to be there this year! I really miss that conference. I haven’t been since 1999 or 2000.

  3. I’ve been the past 3 years now and hope to make it a yearly excursion as long as they have it.

    Last year RC Sproul was the keynote speaker and those were great addresses worth having, but also awesome was Thabiti’s talk from that year.

    Lord willing we can hook up at that conference or another one in the future.

    It’s nice, however, that they have the FREE audio online for all of those conferences of yesteryears.

    Gunny – I am sure we will bump into each other at some conference sometime somewhere – and I look forward to it!
