Clarus 2011 (April 29-May 1): Now a TGC Regional Conference

2011 | by Ryan Kelly | Category: Clarus 11

We are very pleased to announce that, as of 2011, Clarus will serve as a Regional Conference of The Gospel Coalition (TGC). Several developments have lead to this unique partnership. DSC began this yearly conference, now named Clarus, several years ago. Over the years, by God’s grace, we have been privileged to have some first-rate speakers; thus, interest and participation has steadily grown—both in attendance and on the web. In 2010, an Albuquerque Regional Chapter of TGC was formed. Many of these Albuquerque-area pastors were already in fellowship/partnership, and in many cases through connections made at Clarus. After discussions with TGC’s executive leadership, it seemed natural to tie the existing local/regional conference efforts of Clarus into the broader, national movement of TGC.

For those who have attended Clarus in previous years, it will be clear that this partnership will not change much of the feel and aim of the conference. Our hope is that, now as a Regional Conference of TGC, this event will be able to more broadly serve pastors and other interested Christians in the SW (Phoenix, Denver, El Paso, etc.). We are thrilled to have TGC’s support and to be able to help the gospel-centered resourcing and networking efforts of TGC.

Clarus conference attendees are entitled to a discount to TGC’s National Conference in Chicago from April 12 – 14. Instead of $250, the cost for an adult will be $100. For couples, instead of $350, the cost is $150. If you are attending Clarus and plan to attend the TGC’s National Conference, contact the church office for the discount code.

So we hope you will join us, April 29 – May 1, to hear from guest speakers, G.K. Beale and Carl Trueman on this year’s theme, “Scripture: God Speaks.” Stop by the Clarus site to learn more about Clarus, this year’s speakers, the conference schedule, and how to register.

Clarus 2011 (April 29-May 1): “Scripture: God Speaks”

2011 | by Ryan Kelly | Category: Clarus 11

The serpent slyly asked Eve in the Garden, “Did God actually say…?” (Genesis 3:1). Today, as much as ever, God’s people must respond to this satanic pessimism with a hearty confidence in the truth, beauty, and goodness of God’s words to us. The following statement expresses well what we believe about the nature and importance of the Scriptures:

“God has graciously disclosed his existence and power in the created order, and has supremely revealed himself to fallen human beings in the person of his Son, the incarnate Word. Moreover, this God is a speaking God who by his Spirit has graciously disclosed himself in human words… The Bible is to be believed, as God’s instruction, in all that it teaches; obeyed, as God’s command, in all that it requires; and trusted, as God’s pledge, in all that it promises. As God’s people hear, believe, and do the Word, they are equipped as disciples of Christ and witnesses to the gospel.”

– from the Confessional Statement of The Gospel Coalition

To that end, we plan to devote a full weekend at the end of April to this theme, “Scripture: God Speaks.” Two able, godly scholars, G. K. Beale and Carl Trueman, will join us for Clarus 2011 to help us consider the centrality, authority, and clarity of God’s Word and its place in the Christian life (meditation), in the church (preached), and in marriage.

Indeed, our God has spoken…and we intend to listen and heed!

So we hope you will join us, April 29 – May 1, to ponder and feed upon God’s words, sing His truth, and meet some new friends.

Stop by the Clarus site to learn more about Clarus, this year’s speakers, the conference schedule, and how to register. We will post more about this year’s conference to the blog in the days and weeks ahead.
