Together for the Gospel, a conference occurring every two years since its inception in 2006, will come together for the last time in 2022, organizers said today.
Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., and Ligon Duncan, chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary, shared the news in a video posted to T4G.org.
When The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler shared how other commitments prevented him from being part of the 2022 conference, Dever and Ligon agreed that the next T4G would also be the last one. “This has been an ongoing discussion for many months,” an email announcement said. “Dr. Mohler called us a few weeks ago and said, ‘I love you brothers,’ but it’s time.’”
The theme for the conference will be “Last Word: Come Together One Last Time” and will be held April 19-21 in Louisville.
Speakers joining Dever and Duncan include David Platt, H.B. Charles, John Piper, Kevin DeYoung and Alistair Begg. Early bird registration has been extended to Nov. 18. Those registrants will be mailed Piper’s book, Providence.
“I’m pretty pumped about this being the last one, and maybe this being the best one,” Dever said.
Attendees come from more than 25 denominations, all 50 states and 62 nations, according to the T4G website. For the 2022 meeting, all breakout sessions have been removed in order to provide room for an extended discussion on missions at the main stage as well as for participants to browse the bookstore.
