Convincing Christianity: The Implications of a Robust Gospel in Marriage

Speakers: Eric Bancroft Year: 2010 Session: Breakout Session

Since marriage is a model of the gospel, then the pastor’s marriage and teaching on marriage is more important than one might think. What do others learn about Christ and the Church from your marriage? Do you tend to know the theological concepts of the gospel, but fail in displaying it practically?
