Today and tomorrow Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary is hosting its annual Mid-America Conference on Preaching. The theme this year is “Church, Kingdom, Mission: Understanding and Assessing the Missional Church Movement.” As I have opportunity, I will be writing a few posts regarding what is being discussed in the various sessions. My name is Kit Johnson, and I am on the staff of Inter-City Baptist Church. My primary responsibility is to direct our teen ministry. In addition to those responsibilities I help with a variety of tasks within our church. I am also a graduate of DBTS and a current student. I finished my M.Div., in 2008, and Lord willing, will finish my Th.M., this spring. This is also the 8th MACP I have attended. The first time I attended was during my junior year of college in the fall of 2001. The theme that year concerned fundamentalism, and I thank the Lord for how he used the conference that year to clarify a number of important issues in my mind. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the conference again this year.
