The Splendor of Holiness: Upcoming Children’s Conference

We know from Romans 6 that from the early days of the church there has existed a temptation to distort this gospel of God’s grace by deemphasizing God’s holiness. Which is tragic. It’s precisely God’s holiness that makes his grace toward us sinners so amazing! Understanding the doctrine of God’s holiness is absolutely essential if we are to rightly understand the doctrine of God’s grace and the miracle of sanctification.

This is what the Children Desiring God National Conference, being held in Minneapolis May 2–4, is all about. The conference theme is “The Splendor of Holiness,” plenary speakers include John Piper and Bruce Ware, and there will be dozens of workshops.

If you are a children’s or youth worker, a concerned pastor, or other church/ministry leader, and want to take advantage of the best conference price, the early bird registration deadline is March 1.

Let’s “worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness” (Psalm 96:9) and ponder together the doctrine of God’s holiness and how to teach it to the next generation.
