The Gospel Coalition is excited to welcome four newly elected members to our Council. Sam Storms, Matt Carter, Danny Akin, and Dan Doriani each represent the kind of work TGC passionately supports: robustly biblical, theologically driven, gospel-centered ministry in the Reformed tradition for God’s glory and his people’s good.

The Council, a collection of 52 pastors who provide direction and leadership to TGC, meets annually for fellowship, discussion, planning, accountability, and prayer around the gospel of our Lord Jesus. Aiming to bring biblical conviction and pastoral sensitivity to bear on a range of pressing contemporary issues, the Council is committed to shepherding the next generation of church leaders in line with TGC’s foundation documents.
