"From Childhood You Have Known" Conference Media

Our greatest responsibility to the next generations, detailed in Psalm 78, is to make known to them the glorious realities of God's holy Word. Passing on the faith begins with biblical literacy, the focus of Truth78's "From Childhood You Have Known" conference in Louisville, KY, October 18-19, 2019. 

We've provided here links for the video of the plenary sessions and audio and handouts for the breakout seminars.

Plenary Sessions

Ryan Fullerton, lead pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, shows the urgent opportunities Christians have to spread the gospel to the ultimate unreached people group: those yet to be born. But also, he warns of the damage that follows when one generation neglects to teach the next to know the Lord and His mighty works. He takes as his guide, Proverbs, showing how to transfer the faith in wisdom--in practical, lived theology. Watch video

In the second plenary address at the "From Childhood You Have Known" Conference, Dr. Bruce Ware, professor of Christian Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, focuses both on being the parents we need to be, as well as teaching our children what we need to teach. Watch video

What does it look like to obey the Psalm78 mandate in the church and home--to faithfully teach what we’ve been given so that the next generation will set their hope in God? In their plenary message, David and Sally Michael present a vision for churches and parents who are zealous for the faith of the children in their programs and homes, marked by seven biblical commitments for the discipleship of the next generations. Watch video
