I’m very excited to announce a project that has been in the works for over a year: Sola 13.

Sola Fide! Sola Scriptura! Solus Christus! Sola Gratia! Soli Deo Gloria! These five Latin phrases articulated the foundation of the Reformation and called the church back to the primacy of the gospel and the word of God.

On December 6th and 7th in Lansing, Michigan thousands will gather to celebrate and promote these cries of the Reformation. University Reformed Church and Riverview Church (a large Acts 29 congregation in our area) are working together to put on Sola 13. We’ve asked five of our favorite preacher friends to speak on the five solas.

  • Sola Fide – Matt Chandler
  • Sola Gratia – Leonce Crump
  • Solus Christus – Stephen Um
  • Sola Scriptura – Albert Mohler
  • Soli Deo Gloria – John Piper

In addition, I will be speaking, along with Noel Heikkinen from Riverview.

You may think there are already too many conferences to choose from. But few of the folks in our churches are able to attend out of town conferences during the week. So we wanted to bring a great conference to our people on a Friday and Saturday. We hope you’ll make plans to attend and sign up soon. The registration rates are impressively low.

You can learn more about the conference and register here.

    Thanks for putting this on Kevin.

    Because of the low cost and location (we live about an hour up the lake from Port Huron, on the Canadian side) my wife and I will be able to attend.

    Looking forward to it!
