Want to prepare for the Men's Advance with a little Reformation history?  Pastor Serven has recently written a helpful article on John Knox, the "thundering Scot," over at Genevan Foundation for Cultural Renewal: http://www.genevanfoundation.com/articles/give-me-scotland-or-i-die-the-life-and-ministry-of-john-knox/

The vision for the Men’s Advance is to educate and encourage Christian men to fulfill their God-given calling as leaders in the home and church. During this time of growing cultural disengagement with the theology of the Bible, it is paramount for Christian men to return to the time-tested and battle-hardened “Rallying Cries” of the Protestant Reformation. These slogans summarize the essential doctrines of Biblical Christianity and are useful tools for passing on important Bible teaching to others. Over the course of two days we will discuss and defend the “Ongoing Validity of Reformation Theology.” If you embrace these essential doctrines as truth, your life will never quite be the same!

The Men’s Advance is coming-up in just five weeks (April 15-16, 2016)! We have the special privilege of having Dr. Joseph Morecraft as our key speaker. He is an experienced pastor – having served in Presbyterian churches for over forty years! Here is a brief bio…

--------------------------

Dr. Joseph Morecraft, III is the pastor of Heritage Presbyterian Church (RPC, Hanover Presbytery) in Cumming, Georgia. He has written a comprehensive exposition on the Westminster Larger Catechism entitled Authentic Christianity (5 vols.). Besides writing, teaching, and preaching, Joe is married to Becky and they have four adult children, and eight grandchildren. Dr. Morecraft has degrees from King College, BA; from Columbia Theological Seminary, MDiv; and from Whitefield Theological Seminary, MTh and ThD.

Moreover, Dr. Morecraft is an expert on Reformation theology, especially the English and Scottish Reformers. Ask him a question about any of the arcane details of the Puritans or Scottish Covenanters and see if he can’t answer you to your complete satisfaction. I’ll bet he can! With the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the “Ninety-Five Theses” coming-up in 2017, you can get a jump on learning the essential doctrines of the Reformation by attending the Men’s Advance. Take advantage of this great opportunity!

Dr. Morecraft will give talks on “Receiving and Resting upon Christ: By Faith Alone,” “The Imputation of Righteousness: By Grace Alone,” and “The Transformation of Fallen Culture: After Darkness, Light.” He will also preach at Covenant Family Church the day after the Men's Advance on "To God Alone Be the Glory." Dr. Serven will join with him in unpacking these reformation truths, speaking on “Our Firm Foundation: By Scripture Alone,” “The Exclusivity of the Gospel: By Christ Alone,” and “The Christian Life: Before the Face of God.”

Every year our church puts on an event called the Men's Advance (i.e. a men's retreat, but more optimistic...). It's always a wonderful time of discussions, listening to insightful talks, and fellowship. It also includes a musical concert, which is open to the public separate from the conference, and a ladies gathering for the family members of the men coming to the conference (which we are hosting at our house!). Take a look at the event at the link below! This year it is April 15-16. Registration is now open.

"As the years go by it seems to me that this statement from Psalm 146 becomes more prominent in my own mind. The fundamental lesson of human history is that the kingdoms of men rise up, and then over time the kingdoms of men fall down. But, in contrast to that the kingdom of our God continues on forever and ever—because it is an eternal kingdom (Ps. 145:13)..."
