On September 8, 2018, the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary held its annual Westminster Conference. The purpose of the conference is to analyze the Westminster Confession in a twenty-first century context. This year’s topic was Soundly Preaching the Word of God.


Speakers included, Dr. Joel Beeke, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Dr. Ligon Duncan, Chancellor at Reformed Theological Seminary, Dr. Michael LeFebvre, Adjunct Professor of Old Testament Studies at RPTS, and Dr. Barry York, President of RPTS.

Dr. Beeke spoke on Plain Preaching: Demonstrating the Spirit and His Power. Dr. Duncan spoke on Faithful Preaching: Making Known the Whole Counsel of God. Dr. LeFebvre spoke on Wise Preaching: Applying Oneself to the Abilities of the Congregation.

Dr. York finished the day with a sermon on Zealous Preaching: Exercising the Fervent Love for God and His People.

A panel discussion was also included with the speakers answering questions from the conferees (pictured above).

Audio copies of the lectures are available with a form on the Seminary’s Facebook page. Also this year’s conference will be in manuscript format in the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Journal due out later this fall. The Journal is found at www.rpts.edu and is available digitally or in print format.
