The Gospel Coalition is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2013 national conference in Orlando, Florida. The five-day event will run April 6 to 10, including a weekend conference on world missions and three-day main conference focused on the mission of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke (Monday through Wednesday). Both events will be held at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. You are encouraged to attend them together, but you may also register separately. Over five days 80 speakers from around the world will aim to stir your affections for Jesus Christ, equip you to live faithfully in this world, and spread the gospel to the ends of the earth. You can view the schedule and read the talk descriptions. And in partnership with The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, you can now earn up to six hours of transferable graduate or undergraduate credit by attending the conference.
