This has always been a desire of mine, to put together a gospel presentation, 100% free, free to use, free to share and free for everyone. Last night that wish came true.
We had a sold out crowd and a room full of friends and fellowship, great time. We were also joined by Dr. Jason Lisle who recently wrapped up a presuppositional apologetics series at our church Heritage Grace Community Church (heritagegrace.com). We had a panel discussion with both Dr. Lisle and Dr. White which I thought went really well. We talked about the sufficiency of the gospel and apologetical methodology and some issues we face in evangelism today. All in all it was a great night. A very special thanks to all who made this possible. We only planned the premiere 3 weeks out and still packed the house out, special thanks to Robert Reece, Lalo Gunther and my dear wife Trish. Also everyone else who helped with the premiere night, thank you. And also to everyone who came out to join us we appreciate you.
Of course this was only the beginning for the film. We are looking to spread the film far and wide. We have made gospel tracts available for mass distribution; perfect for college campus and evangelism in general. This is also a perfect resource for churches to use in youth groups and their various outreaches. We also have t-shirts and hoodies available for the film that turns you into a walking gospel message as folks see the #hashtag they will be pricked to curiously look up the link. That is what this entire endeavor is all about, the gospel. That is what I made clear to James and Paul in doing the film. This is not about money, fame, your ministry or mine, it was looking out every week at a sea of faces on a college campus and thinking of putting something into their hand or they mobile device where the gospel was going to be faithfully and clearly presented— by God’s grace, I think we achieved that.
Of course my mind is always swarming with ideas of how to spread the gospel and good theology; you will just have to stay tuned I suppose. Next, however is our October conference. Wow, amazing Phil Johnson, Dr. Jason Lisle, Dr. James White, Todd Friel and yours truly; sure to be an amazing time. If you have not registered, my guess is, this conference will sell out so be sure and register today: heritagegrace.com
I also introduced my new book, Crucified: the Soul of the Gospel at the premiere. Not sure which is more stressful, books or film. But Crucified was also a great answer to prayer. I am especially grateful to Dr. Joel Beeke for his kind words of endorsement. I have been a fan of Dr. Beeke for many years and his work on the Puritans has always helped sustain me through years of pastoral ministry. Crucified is also the first publication of Redgracemedia. If you have not be sure and visit the site and pick up a copy. Hopefully everyone will continue be encouraged by redgracemedia. Our slogan is evangelical, evangelistic and reformed because that is who we are and that is what we desire to remain; faithful to the gospel, faithful to evangelism and faithful to reformed theology.
