Finish the Mission: For the Joy of All Peoples - 2011 DG National Conference

I just finished listening to this year’s Desiring God National Conference, and I must say that it was excellent!

While each speaker spoke with passion and shed light upon the church’s present mission, I was particularly moved by Michael Ramsden’s message Courage, Christ, and Finishing the Mission.  It was vibrant, engaging, and a-typical.  Mr. Ramsden has been the European Director of RZIM Zacharias Trust since its foundation in 1997.  He is also Director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and Lecturer in Christian Apologetics at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.  But more importantly, he is an experienced evangelist and a servant of Jesus Christ.  His challenge should be heard.

Regarding the other sessions, I would encourage you to listen to the interview with Greg Livingston and David Sitton.  Anytime you can hear from a veteran missionary, you need to do so.  Doubly so with two missionaries!

Lastly, the panel discussion was good and should find its way on to your IPod.  Piper’s message was excellent as well, but if you are only going to listen to one message, do download Michael Ramsden’s.
