The 5 Most Helpful Gleanings from the Capitol Hill BC Weekender

The five posts to follow this one will address what I observed most recently at the Weekender Conference at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, and their extension ministry, Nine Marks.  I found the time spent in D.C. to be well worth the 11 hour drive from Louisville.  There were numerous things that served to encourage my heart and influence my thinking about the local church and the pastoral ministry in general.  Out of this variety, I will take five gleanings over the next few days in no particular order:

Accountability Structures

Congregational Singing

Expository Preaching (Word-Centered Ministry)

The Shepherding Emphasis

The Purity of the Church (Regenerate Membership and Church Discipline)

I hope that these will be helpful reminders to you, issues that you must and will think through.  Thus, I will offer some humble paragraphs on each of these matters.  May the Lord strike a match in the hay stack of your mind, even as he did in mine during this trip.
