My experience at the Southern Baptist Founders’ Conference exceeded all my expectations. As a speaker myself, I decided to attend every one of the messages offered at the conference. I can say that every one of them was rich with substance and full of good, humble Christian spirit. In none of them did I say, “I could have been using my time better.” This was one of the most content-rich conferences I have ever been to. I thank God for the Founders’ Conference and what God is doing in this movement to bring refreshment and reformation to the Church.  – John Piper
