More Challenging Sermons and Encouraging Worship at Resolved 2010

The Resolved Conference has been held since 2005 and I have been present the past three times. This year's attendance was the largest yet, shifting the orientation of the convention center lengthwise and adding risers in the back. So most seats were further from the stage, but at least more people got to experience the event.

From my perspective, the Resolved Conference is in the top three Christian conferences in the nation, with Desiring God and Together for the Gospel being the other two.  Of the three, this is the only one held in California and the only conference oriented toward young adults.   While the Resolved Conference originated as a college retreat and still maintains that focus, you will find all generations now in attendance.

This conference combines insightful teaching with excellent worship.  There is one session the first night and then 3 or 4 sessions each day for the next 3 days.  Each session combines about an half an hour of worship music with an hour or more of sermon.  The session speakers are among the most sought-after preachers in the US and the worship is lead by the band Enfield.

The past two years, John Piper was one of the speakers.  And he is very difficult to replace.  This year, however,  Al Mohler took his place along side Rick Holland, John MacArthur, C. J. Mahaney, and Steve Lawson.  Mohler is probably the leading mind in American Evangelicalism today and his rigorous intellectualism and scholarly seriousness was a refreshing addition to the conference.  The other speakers were excellent as usual, combining insightful exposition with practical application.  C. J. Mahaney was again the crowd favorite, delivering two very powerful sermons that I am endeavoring to listen to again and again.  I am always impressed that he is able to deliver such stirring messages year after year.  This is not a conference for the easily distracted.  Each session is packed with weighty theology that requires much attention and reflection.  But for those willing to put in the effort, the fruit is well worth the investment of time and energy.

Enfield is the worship band for the college ministry at Grace Community Church in the San Fernando Valley.  The previous two years, they have released a CD of original songs oriented toward the theme of the conference.  At this year's event, they released a CD of modern interpretations of classical hymns such as There Is A Fountain and Lead On Oh King Eternal.  This year Bob Kauflin from Sovereign Grace Music was present and lead a moving rendition of his son Jordon's composition All I Have Is Christ.  The times of worship in song at Resolved are sweet and powerful.  There is something very special about worshipping with thousands of other enthusiastic followers of Christ.  Enfield's musicianship it top notch and their song selection serves to enhance the theme of the conference and the impact of the messages.

I would heartily recommend this conference for any serious Christian looking to be encouraged and challenged in their faith.
