Jonathan Edwards for the Church Conference

confA notable feature of the recovery of the Reformed faith in the United Kingdom was God’s use of American theologian Jonathan Edwards in the ministries and lives of the leaders. Thomas Chalmers, Charles Spurgeon, A. W. Pink, John Murray, and D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones all considered the discovery of Edwards’ writings as turning points in their ministries. Indeed, it is at least possible that the qualitative influence of Edwards has been greater here than it has been among the American church. Jonathan Edwards for the Church seeks to promote such usefulness in a new generation.

The upcoming Jonathan Edwards for the Church Conference will take place next year on February 27 and 28 at Collingwood College, Durham (UK), and the speakers include Reformed ministers who have studied Edwards as well as specialist scholars who are also ministers. They are:

  • Nicholas T. Batzig
  • David Owen Filson
  • William Macleod
  • 
Gerald R. McDermott
  • John J. Murray
  • 
Jon D. Payne
  • William M. Schweitzer
  • 
Douglas A. Sweeney
  • Jeffrey C. Waddington

This conference will provide a forum in the UK for ministers and other interested Christians to share the riches of Jonathan Edwards’s astonishing ministry. We have seen half a century of rapidly escalating JE publications and research, and there have been many conferences held all over the world but this is believed to be the first held in England. While most of these conferences have been primarily for the academy, this conference is unashamedly for the church. Therefore, worship and prayer will be integrated into the program.
