Who’s Who at the 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend

One of the most exciting things about our 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend is our special guest speakers who literally come to us from around the world! In addition to Mike, Rod, Kim, and Ken—our regular “cast of characters” from the White Horse Inn—we’re pleased to welcome Greg Koukl, Isaac Shaw, and Hicham Chehab. We hope that these brief introductions to our special guests encourage you to register to attend before the end of the early bird promotional rate on January 31, 2014.

 

Greg Koukl is the host of the syndicated radio program, Stand to Reason. He’s a frequent guest on the White Horse Inn, and we’re proud to work with him in the important areas of apologetics and Christian witness. He’s been featured on many secular and religious news outlets across the country, especially when important religious and ethical issues are at stake. His most recent book, Tactics, is the kind of hands-on guide that Christians need to discuss their faith in the public square. Greg has lectured around the world, and we’re honored to have him join us. His keynote address on Thursday night, “Is God a Religious Pluralist?,” will demonstrate the kind of careful thinking and engaging presentation that has made Greg a trusted voice on issues of Christian theology and apologetics.

  • Thursday night keynote dinner address
  • Friday morning panel discussion

 

Isaac Shaw is a busy man! He is both the executive director of the New Delhi Bible Institute and the senior pastor of the Bible Bhavan Christian Fellowship churches—a family of churches across North India. Isaac is responsible for giving leadership to many young pastors, missionaries, and evangelists who are taking the gospel into areas of North India dominated by Hinduism and Islam. He has overseen the establishment of more than seventy churches. We’re blessed to have a man like Isaac who is serving on the front lines of the Kingdom’s expansion to teach us how to engage our unbelieving family and friends with the unique message of the Christian faith. His keynote address on Friday night, “The False Hope of Hinduism,” will introduce many of us to one of the fastest growing religions in the world.

  • Friday night keynote dinner address
  • Saturday morning seminar
  • Saturday afternoon panel discussion

 

Hicham Chehab’s story of his conversion to Christ is an exciting account of God’s faithfulness in the midst of great conflict. Hicham grew up in Lebanon during that country’s bloody civil war. Raised in a Muslim family and drawn to some of the extremist groups that fought during the war, Hicham’s world was turned upside down when a Christian killed his brother. By the grace of God, Hicham was saved from both his rage and his sin and became a pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. He immigrated to the United States where he now serves as a missionary to Muslim immigrants across the Midwest. His seminar on Saturday morning, “The Mission Field Next Door,” will equip you to understand and witness to your Muslim neighbors and friends.

How to Help Our Friends in the Philippines

Many of you remember that last year, Mike Horton spent some time in the Philippines teaching and ministering with friends there. Our “man in Manila,” Nollie Malabuyo, has been in contact with us and sent this summary, which includes information on how to help those who have been directly affected by the disaster:

News reports on Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation of our country seem to be getting worse by the day.   Tens of thousands are dead, many of them left unburied. Homes, churches, and buildings are destroyed. Looting and violence are starting to take over the streets. The government is overwhelmed.

From the reports of foreign missionaries who have worked in these areas for years, even decades, their mission buildings suffered great damage, and Christian brothers and sisters have also lost their homes and fields, and many also died.

The news reports focus on the big cities, particularly Tacloban. But there is a big swath of destruction left behind by the typhoon (see enclosed map).

A group of Reformed people in Manila is meeting to discuss how God can use this time of trouble to spread the gospel and assist many in the devastated areas.

Please pray for this effort. None of us has ever been involved in rebuilding efforts after a disaster.

This will be a long-term rebuilding of many parts of the country.  Besides larger relief agencies, the following domestic links are reliable (theologically and financially).

On the Rock Ministries, Boracay

Dan and Tori Beaver (Facebook). Serving the Ati people and tourists. Church, school, Bible school

The Hope Foundation, Inc., Tacloban City, Leyte

Larry & Bobby Womack (Facebook). Serving the poor. Bible school/institute

WHI-1178 | How To Read Your Bible

How to Read Your Bible

What is the Bible all about, and how can a person read it correctly? Why are there so many different books in Scripture, and how do they relate to one another? On this episode of White Horse Inn, we introduce our new series: How to Read Your Bible. Instead of a more general approach, we’ll actually dive into the biblical text by introducing and summarizing the Pentateuch. What is the purpose and message of these five books? What was God’s promise to Abraham, and how did it differ from the covenant made at Mt. Sinai? We’ll look at these questions and more as we kick off our new series.
