The Desiring God 2012 Pastor’s Conference is entitled “God, Manhood & Ministry: Building Men for the Body of Christ.”
This year’s speakers are:
The conference, which takes place from January 30 – February 1, is on a topic that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently, so I’m very excited to hear some of these men’s thoughts. I’m secretly hoping Doug Wilson will get drug into a justification/covenant debate in the Q&A, that Piper’s bio on J.C. Ryle will be excellent, and that there will be some sort of “fire sale” in the bookstore just when I walk in (preferably on the NIGTC commentary series!).

I’m also really keen for Rev. Dr. Tim Witmer’s pre-conference talk from his book The Shepherd Leader. We’ve been looking at parts of this book with the Consistory I serve with, and so I have a bunch of questions I’d like to hear him address.
Will I see you at the Pastor’s Conference? Let me know if you’re going and say hi!
