“We need to be faithful in depositing God’s truth into trustworthy men,” said John McIntosh, incoming moderator of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, last night at the final evening of the annual conference of the fellowship. The conference concluded today (Thursday) in Tampa, Fla.
McIntosh, who is senior pastor of the Grace Brethren Church in Simi Valley, Calif., referenced II Timothy 2:1-2 as he listed the five critical components for transferring the gospel from one generation to another. The five were the treatment, the treasure, the training, the transfer, an the trophy.
He challenged those present to join him in studying the book of II Timothy during the coming year, as pastors and other leaders will spend time in the book during regional Focus Retreats.
