Spurgeon Library Conference

April 19 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

The Spurgeon Library Conference is an annual academic conference that engages Spurgeon scholarship for pastors and church leaders.

The second annual Spurgeon Library Conference will be held on April 19, 2023 on the theme: “Fruitful Devotion: Spurgeon’s Private Spirituality and Gospel Activism.” While historians have told the story of Spurgeon’s busy preaching and pastoral ministry, less has been said about his private devotional life. What did Spurgeon’s spiritual disciplines look like? How did his private life fuel his public ministry? And in addition to pastoring his own church, what can we learn about Spurgeon’s engagement with benevolent and church planting ministries? In this year’s conference, we will be exploring how Spurgeon’s devotional life provided deep roots for his evangelical activism.

Our speakers will be Drs. Don Whitney, Alex DiPrima, and Geoff Chang, all who have researched and written extensively on these topics. For all attending, our prayer is that Spurgeon might be a helpful model for cultivating communion with Christ and an active love for our neighbor.

The cost is $30, which includes book giveaways. The conference will be held in the Spurgeon Library on the campus of Midwestern Seminary, so seating is limited. We look forward to seeing you!
