2017 Timothy Conference

The Committee on Christian Education is pleased to announce that the 2017 OPC Timothy Conference will be held in Southern California, hosted by Harvest OPC in San Marcos, California. Westminster Seminary California will also provide gracious assistance by opening its doors so that conference attendees are exposed to seminary classes. OPC ministers Jonathan Moersch (Trinity Presbyterian, Capistrano Beach, CA), Christopher Chelpka (Covenant OPC, Tuscon, AZ), and John Fesko (Professor at WSC) will be conference speakers, joined by Danny Olinger and Dave VanDrunen of the Committee on Christian Education.

The conference, designed for OP men aged 16–21, will help a young man in your congregation who has been endorsed by his session to answer questions such as:

  • What does it mean to be a minister of the gospel?
  • How do I know if the Lord is calling me to be a teacher, a missionary, or a pastor?
  • How do I prepare for the ministry in my personal life, my education, and my church?
  • What is the process for becoming a minister in the OPC?

The conference is supported by offerings to Worldwide Outreach, so there is no cost to the young men who attend. Sessions must nominate and write a letter of recommendation for potential participants from their congregations. Applications should be sent to David Winslow (winslow.1@opc.org) or Danny Olinger (olinger.1@opc.org) before January 15, 2017.
