T 4 Free question #2 WINNER

March 7, 2008

The winner of our question why the local church is better than a pastors conference IS

moving to New Jersey soon,

but now resides in Franklin, TN.

Reid Monaghan is the winner!

And the winning entry was:

Top Ten Reasons Local Churches are better than pastors’ conferences:

  1. It is OK your pastor is not named “John” or “Mark”
  2. Deacon cage matches – learning to forgive and be forgiven
  3. You have to be rich to go to conferences – the poor are welcomed in local churches (hopefully)
  4. The Lord’s Table
  5. Scripture – You find out God has given many teachers to his church – beyond the 7  guys who are invited to every reformed conference
  6. All mission is local
  7. Where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came – (again, hopefully)
  8. Pot-Lucks
  9. Special music – or not
  10. People meeting Jesus
