Ligonier Conference

Ligonier Conference

Dear HLPC family,

Connie and I attended our first Ligonier National Conference in Orlando back in the early 90’s.  We have been to many of them over the years.  I have always left them greatly encouraged in my faith and brought home some great books from the conference bookstore.  I’m thankful for the resources and teaching that Ligonier has provided over the years.

Today, a group of 18 of us from HLPC are leaving to attend this year’s conference that begins tomorrow morning and ends at noon on Saturday.  We would appreciate your prayers for travel safety and for a great time of fellowship and teaching.

I wanted you to know that you will be able to watch the livestream of the conference teaching sessions for free.  Sinclair Ferguson, Voddie Baucham, Derek Thomas, Robert Godfrey, and others are the speakers.  Perhaps it will whet your appetite to come along next year! Just follow this link for the schedule and ways to watch:

Hoping I get to hang out with my hero, Sinclair Ferguson, I remain…

Your Pastor,
