The Desiring God Conference for Pastors is a gathering of church leaders for serious thought, honest discussion, and earnest prayer concerning crucial Biblical teachings in historical and contemporary perspective. The aims of the conference each year are:

  • Theology: To stir up consideration of the Biblical truths that Puritans liked to call the “doctrines of grace.”
  • Encouragement: To revive the spirit of the downcast and strengthen each other’s hands in the work of the gospel.
  • Preaching: To promote earnest, powerful preaching that inspires in God’s people a love for the truth and a life of obedience.
  • Missions: To advance the cause of frontier missions through the incentives of sovereign grace.
  • Worship: To promote God-centered, Bible-based, heartfelt worship in the churches.
