Simply stated, we see the Reformation as a Spirit-led recovery of the gospel as it was taught by Jesus and the Apostles. Consider the thesis put forward by the well-regarded Reformation scholar, Dr. Timothy George; he writes, “As a movement in history, the...

Report on the Men’s Advance (2015)

Posted by on Apr 4, 2015 in Men's Advance

Attendance and Theme:  This was a wonderful year for the Men’s Advance (Feb. 27-28), with very good dynamics between the two speakers—Dr. Derek Carlsen and Dr. Marcus Serven—and an attentive group of participants! In terms of the overall attendance, this was a smaller year with just 82 men and boys registering for the Advance, and due to snowy weather only 75 people at the closing concert. The record attendance occurred in 2013—with 150 men and boys at the Men’s Advance and 250 at the concert. Nevertheless, God blessed our efforts this year and we were happy with the turnout. The theme—on...

Theme for the Men’s Advance

Posted by on Jan 27, 2015 in Men's Advance

“Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God.” Psalm 146:3-5 As the years go by it seems to me that this statement from Psalm 146 becomes more prominent in my own mind. The fundamental lesson of human history is that the kingdoms of men rise up, and then over time the kingdoms of men fall down. But, in contrast to that the kingdom of our God continues on forever and ever—because it is an eternal...
