Pastors can build a gospel culture, a relational environment saturated with grace, where no repentant sinner has anything to fear. The gospel as doctrine is true, and the gospel as a culture is beautiful. Ray Ortlund will spend some time encouraging us to cultivate a Gospel-saturated ministry.

Pastor’s wives are also invited to join Jani Ortlund who will be speaking about the unique challenge of being married to a pastor.
