Stand 2018 is cancelled

Dear all,

Thank you for your interest in and support for the Stand for the Gospel Conference over the years. It has been our joy to host this conference annually since 2010, and in both Auckland and Christchurch since 2014.

Due to circumstances out of his control, our main speaker for 2018, Carl Trueman has had to cancel. This decision has been made with great reluctance and sorrow in the last 24 hours.

The conference committee has subsequently decided the best course of action, with only three months until the scheduled conference dates, is to cancel this year’s Stand for the Gospel Conference.

Again, we do this reluctantly and with sorrow. Yet, we are committed to hosting conferences of the highest quality and do not believe we can do this well in such a short amount of time.

We trust the Lord’s providence and good purposes in this. Though we are thankful for this conference, we also recognise that conferences are not sacred institutions.

In the Lord’s kindness we already have main speakers scheduled for 2019 and 2020, so keep the Stand for the Gospel Conference on your radar. Lord willing we will see you then!

2019 (Joel Beeke) => 19-21 July (Christchurch), 26-28 July (Auckland)

2020 (Don Carson) => Tentatively set between 30 July and 10 August

Blessings in Christ,

Stand Conference Committee
