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