Donald Whitney to Speak at New Heights Baptist Church on Spiritual Discipline

I found this post at the new New Heights Baptist Church blog, For His Glory. SBTS students are encouraged to attend.


Dr. Donald S. ("Don") Whitney, Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Senior Associate Dean at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, will be speaking at the Spiritual Disciplines Conference at New Heights Baptist Church on the evening of Friday, April 17 and the morning of Saturday, April 18. This conference will include teaching on the disciplines of praying through Scripture (Friday) and meditating on Scripture (Saturday).

Several local congregations are already committed to attending this event. If you would like to attend (and we would love to have you), please contact the office of Pastor Cody McNutt at (502) 592-6195 in advance to reserve space. New Heights is located at 7315 Southside Dr., Louisville, between New Cut Rd. and Palatka Rd.

Overview: Don Whitney has devoted his life to helping young men and women develop biblical disciplines in order to better love and serve God. The two headlining lessons that Dr. Whitney will be teaching on are based on the Christian's need for Scriptural guidance. Scripture should inform each Christian's prayer and thought life. Dr. Whitney will outline how to go about the process of disciplining yourself for godliness (1 Tim 4:7b-10).

This conference promises to be of great gain for believers of all sorts, whether young or old, new or mature. New Heights Baptist Church welcomes Dr. Donald S. Whitney and we look forward to a great night of learning and fellowship.
