I was able to attend the Advance 2013 Conference via live-stream this weekend.
The link to my notes are below.
Speakers: John Piper, Matt Chandler, David Platt, J.D. Greear, Tyler Jones, and others
About: What’s more important, making disciples or reaching the lost? Faithfulness or effectiveness? Width or depth? We tend to prioritize one or the other. Churches that prioritize depth place a great emphasis on discipleship, but are often ineffective at reaching the lost. Churches that prioritize width reach the lost, but are often shallow and fail to produce mature disciples.
But faithfulness and fruitfulness are not at odds. It is the Father’s desire that we bear much fruit AND pass on to faithful men what we have heard. The early church both devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching AND saw the Lord add to their number daily. If we want to build and plant healthy churches, we need to embrace the tension of faithfulness and effectiveness.
