B21 Panel from Unite 2019

At the Pillar Network’s 2019 Unite Conference, Baptist21 hosted a panel on cross-cultural ministry, exploring what it is like to be a faithful expositor and pastor in various contexts. Featured guests for this discussion included SEBTS President, Danny Akin, who has helped equip scores of missionaries, Liam Garvie, an elder at the largest evangelical church in Scotland, Jeff Hay, a church planter in Dublin, Ireland, Prof. William “Duce” Branch, who has helped plant in inner-city Philadelphia, and Evgeny Bakhmutsky, a Russian pastor and church planting expert. Nate Akin from Baptist21/Pillar facilitated this panel.

While a breadth of topics were addressed in this talk, key subjects revolved around ministering amongst unreached people groups and post-Christian environments, sermon prep/style, cultural biases, and liturgy.
