Cornhill Scotland

Expository Ministry Conference, 2024

Expository Ministry Conference

‘Serving the Servants of the Word’

Tuesday 25th – Thursday 27th June, 2024

We were immensely encouraged by our revamped Expository Ministry Conference in June ’23, and we look forward to the next time we meet.

The Expository Ministry Conference (EMC ’24) is principally for pastors, including pastors in training. Our aim is to be nourished together in God’s word so as to sharpen our preaching, think biblically about the work of ministry, and encourage one another in our service of the Lord.

Speakers

There are three plenary sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday and two on Thursday. In addition, there are a range of optional seminar streams from 3pm on the first two days. The conference concludes with the Cornhill Valedictory Service after a meal together on Thursday at 2pm to which everyone is warmly invited.

Having formerly taught maths in Scotland, Christopher was an Assistant Minister in St. Andrew the Great in Cambridge, before leading a church plant in Little Shelford, and then served as Director of the Cornhill Training Course in London from 2004-15. He is now Writer-in-Residence at Tyndale House, Cambridge, where he belongs to Cambridge Presbyterian Church. Christopher and his wife Carolyn have three sons and a daughter, and nine grandchildren.

We understand the challenges and sacrifices that come with being in ministry. We believe that this conference will provide you with stretching content and much encouragement alongside like-minded christians to help you to continue in your faithful service of the Lord and His people.  The conference will also provide space to sing and pray together, as well as ample opportunity to catch-up over coffee and lunch. We hope the conference to be a time of ongoing development, rich fellowship and deepening friendships.
