The modern church-growth movement has produced many formulas and strategies for achieving rapid growth in church attendance. And while the desire to reach the lost is commendable, the pursuit of God and His standards is all too often lost in the zeal to fill our churches.
In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2005 Pastors Conference, Drs. R.C. Sproul, Mark Dever, and Derek Thomas call upon the leaders of the church to renew their commitment to being God-centered in all aspects of ministry. The speakers explore the importance of expository preaching, the elements of God-glorifying worship, and explain how the ministries of prayer, evangelism, mercy, and education can be conducted in a manner honoring to God and sensitive to the needs of the congregation.
