Main Speaker & theme
Robin has been the minister of Chalmers Church, Edinburgh for 10 years, serving the church in London prior to that. He is married to Sally and they have three children, Lucy, David and William, and a dog called Millie.
Robin has spent time as a university lecturer and also as a Charted Accountant. He is passionate about the training and development of young church leaders, something that you can hear him discussing on a recent 'Generation podcast', where he also opened up more about his own personal walk of faith.
The podcast can be found here: https://generation-mission.org/generation-podcast
We have also heard whisperings that Robin sometimes frequents the table-tennis area at Chalmers, so perhaps wait around for him at the games area at the conference if you want to get chatting to him.
2 Timothy 2: Fit for Purpose
Feeling discouraged, weak, ill-equipped, beaten down or even just a bit apathetic about following Jesus and sharing the good news about Him with others? Paul’s young friend Timothy seemed to feel this too, yet in this letter we find immense encouragement and clear direction about persevering, growing, sharing and staying grounded in faith that’s as real for us ‘in Christ’ as it was for this disciples. We'll be focussing on 2 Timothy 2 over the conference weekend so check out this portion of the bible over the next few weeks.
On the Saturday of the conference there will be two opportunities to attend interactive seminars with choice from the topics below. We'll get more detailed information about what to expect from each to you via social media and email closer to the conference, but hopefully these teasers will get you thinking about which might be most helpful for you.
