Every year TGC Council members meet for several days of discussion, debate, prayer, and fellowship around the gospel of Jesus Christ. This year around 100 Council members and guests are meeting on the campus of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and challenging one another to pursue Christ with biblical faithfulness. The agenda includes a wide variety of topics emerging from the pressing issues faced in local churches, cultures, and the church universal. Take a look at Tuesday’s agenda and a few photos from Louisville. All videos recorded Tuesday evening will eventually be released to the public.
