Word Works Conference – John’s Gospel

On July 11-12 I had the privilege of speaking at the second Malaysian Word Works conference, in a hotel in Sepang, just outside Kuala Lumpur. The Word Works conference is an activity of the Malaysia Gospel Growth Fellowship (GGF), which is a fellowship committed to glorifying God through the growth of Gospel-centred evangelical Christianity in the local church in Malaysia.

Word Works is one of the activities of the GGF. It’s a 2- day event designed to help everyday Christians learn how to read the Bible better, especially in its different genres and styles of writing. The two days were certainly jam-packed (6 x one hour lectures, 4 Bible studies, a sermon and 2 question times!) but the ~40 conference participants were very keen. By the end of the two days they had a firmer grasp of how to read John’s Gospel for themselves. Even better: many felt that they were equipped to go back to their churches and share the Bible with others.

You can download the lectures, Q&A times and sample sermon here:

Please pray for the Malaysia Gospel Growth Fellowship. It is a fledgling group, but because of the deep theological maturity and commitment of its members, it has great potential to make a lasting impact for the gospel in Malaysia. Malaysia is a majority Muslim nation, which can make life a little difficult for Christians; nevertheless there is relative freedom amongst the Christians to proclaim the gospel and build up the saints, and there’s a lot of work to do in this regard! The GGF is also looking for financial support to train ministry apprentices and grow their conferences (they also run a Thinking Theologically conference, a Fellow Workers ministry conference, and the Moore College Certificate in Theology correspondence course). If you would like more information on becoming a GGF supporter, please contact me.
