Tuesday morning, I’m heading off to the exotic land of Nashville to live-blog the Gospel Project webcast and spend the day at Lifeway Christian Resources. Here’s a quick rundown of the event:
On March 14th, get an inside look at The Gospel Project, LifeWay’s new gospel-centered Bible study resource, through this special webcast event. Trevin Wax, Managing Editor of The Gospel Project, will host as Advisory Council members Matt Chandler and J.D. Greear, and General Editor Ed Stetzer, talk about gospel-centeredness in the lives of Christians and the church, today. Matt Chandler will discuss the need to make the gospel explicit in our small groups, J.D. Greear will discuss the need to ground our life-application in the gospel, and Ed Stetzer will talk about the need for gospel-centeredness to move us out on mission for God’s Kingdom.
1. The content. I’m genuinely excited to learn more about The Gospel Project—all of us, regardless of our familiarity with the Scriptures, will benefit from sound teaching that makes much of Jesus. Matt Chandler does a great job of this in the following video:
2. The Q&A. In addition to each speaker’s topical teaching, there will be the opportunity for some q&a and a panel discussion. Q&As can be a lot of fun if there are a lot of good questions and panel discussions are often the best part of these sorts of events. At TGC 2011, some of the best sessions were the ones that involved the panelists interacting with one another (the last minute addition of a panel discussion on the doctrine of hell is a good example). Looking forward to seeing how the discussion goes.
3. Nashville. This one isn’t so much a webcast specific bit, but it’s still a big deal to me as I’ve never visited Nash Vegas until now (despite having a number of friends in the area). Looking forward to seeing the sites, hopefully hanging out with Matt & Josh from the Bridge in Spring Hill, and seeing if Nashville lives up to the hype. Anything you recommend checking out in downtown Nashville?
