The Ministry of The Word
God’s Word is meant not just to be believed but also to be ministered in the Church. “Faith comes from hearing,” wrote Paul, “and hearing through the Word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). This series explores how the Church is built by the ministry of God’s Word, as it is both faithfully preached and receptively heard.
The 4 pre-conference messages in The Ministry of the Word include:
- “God’s Living Word” by Richard Phillips
- “How the World Builds the Church” by Ligon Duncan
- “How to Preach a Good Sermon” by Ligon Duncan
- “How to Listen to a Bad Sermon” by Ligon Duncan

The Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology is the longest running national Reformed conference. It was started in 1974 by Dr. James Boice. It exists to glorify God through a rediscovery of the Church’s great doctrinal foundations.
