Deep days provide ‘deep theology for church planting’. Open to both church leaders and congregational members, Deep days are designed to take Christians further in their theological understanding to equip them for their involvement in churches that plant churches.

Every church planter longs to see the Holy Spirit at work in granting saving faith to people, and in stirring corporate renewal. Jonathan Edwards has been called “the theologian of revival”, and his work in these two areas is indispensable for our own lives and ministry.

Acts 29 Europe, in partnership with Porterbook Network, is pleased to put together a day that not only informs us, but also provides a critique of who Jonathan Edwards was and what he taught. Jonathan Edwards was a Christian preacher and theologian from the 18th century. He is widely acknowledged to be America’s most important and original theologian, and one of America’s greatest intellectuals.

The day will be made up of four sessions, each with opportunity for Q&A:

  1. The Life of Jonathan Edwards
  2. Edwards on faith in Christ that justifies
  3. Edwards on faith in Christ that sanctifies
  4. Edwards on corporate renewal

The speakers for the day are:

Michael McClenahan – Michael is the minister of a Presbyterian congregation in County Armagh. He is a Fellow of the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University. He teaches theology for the Cornhill Training Course in Belfast and is the Senior Editor of the BibleMesh Biblical Languages project.

Mike Tindall – Mike is an Acts 29 Europe Church Planter, who leads Grace Church Manchester, a young church plant in south central Manchester. Mike is married with five children, and has had a keen interest in Edwards since studying under Richard Lovelace at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Food: Please bring your own lunch. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
