2013 OPC Timothy Conference

The 2013 OPC Timothy Conference will be held April 17–20 in the Chicago area, hosted by Covenant OPC in Orland Park, Illinois, and New Covenant Community Church in New Lenox, Illinois. Mid-America Reformed Seminary will also provide gracious assistance by opening its doors so that conference attendees are exposed to seminary classes. Pastors Brian De Jong (Grace OPC, Sheboygan), John Hilbelink (Providence OPC, Rockford), and Bruce Hollister (New Covenant Community, New Lexox) will be conference speakers, joined by Danny Olinger and Dave VanDrunen of the Committee on Christian Education.

The conference, designed for OP men aged 16–21, will help a young man in your congregation who has been endorsed by his session to answer questions such as:

  • What does it mean to be a minister of the gospel?
  • How do I know if the Lord is calling me to be a teacher, a missionary, or a pastor?
  • How do I prepare for the ministry in my personal life, my education, and my church?
  • What is the process for becoming a minister in the OPC?

The conference is supported by offerings to Worldwide Outreach, so there is no cost to the young men who attend. Sessions must nominate and write a letter of recommendation for potential participants from their congregations. Applications should be sent to David Winslow or Danny Olinger before January 15, 2013.
