New Testament Church Workshop

Posted by on Jan 4, 2008 in edification, elders, gathering, ordinances/sacraments | 12 comments

Steve Atkerson of the New Testament Reformation Fellowship (NTRF) is holding “A Biblically-based workshop on New Testament Church Life” in Smithfield, NC on Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9 (Note: The dates have changed). The conference is free, but registration is required.

While the conference is called a “House Church Workshop“, the topics appear to be applicable to many different meeting locations. Here are some of the topics:

  • The Lord’s Supper as a Celebratory Fellowship Meal
  • Participatory Church Meetings
  • Elder-Led Congregational Consensus
  • Apostolic Traditions & New Testament Patterns

I have not decided if I am going to attend this conference. If you decide to attend the conference, please let me know. (HT: House Church Unplugged)

    My wife and I are going. It would be great to have you there for fellowship and discernment. You should also meet Steve Atkerson. He’s a great brother that is very, very like-minded.

    Thank you for letting me know. I’m hoping that if I go to the conference that several other people from here will go with me.

    Alan, I don’t have any authority in our fellowship. I haven’t worked up the ladder or hierarchy yet! 😉

    Thank you for the comment. I have registered for the conference, so, God willing, I will be attending. I look forward to meeting you.

    Aussie John,

    Actually, Margaret, my wife, has mentioned how much she would like to come to Australia to meet you. I wish we could do that!
