This event is promoted by the Porterbrook Campus Bologna and five local churches.
We'll have a first session in the morning for church-leaders, missionaries, and church-workers of the area where Collin Hansen and Chris Castaldo will introduce the aims and priorities of the Gospel Coalition.
Then we'll have a session on "The Gospel @ the centre of our churches and ministries".
Later the pastors of these five churches will have a lunch with Collin and Chris. There we'll have an opportunity to discuss with them how we could implement at an Italian level the missional and churches-cooperation ethos of the TGC.
In the evening we'll have a conference for all these churches, where Chris and Collin will speak about: "A passion for the Gospel and the next generation".
Chris Castaldo, author of the book: Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic and
Collin Hansen, author of the book: Young, Restless, Reformed: A Journalist’s Journey With the New Calvinists will be teaching in several networks of Gospel-centered church leaders across Italy.
TGC began with informal conversations between D. A. Carson and Tim Keller in 2004.
Today is a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures. TGC want to generate a unified effort among all peoples—an effort that is zealous to honor Christ and multiply his disciples, joining in a true coalition for Jesus. Such a biblically grounded and united mission is the only enduring future for the church.
