The Gospel Coalition exists to prepare the next generation for gospel-centered ministry, and the heart behind TGC Memphis is this: Pastors and preachers who are being challenged by the gospel and its impact for all of life are rare. It is no accident that there are so many of us in the same city, especially a city whose religion is known by a markedly different character. We gather together to encourage one another in grace—in the gospel—but we also meet, with an aim toward unity, to pray together for renewal and revival in our churches and city.
“When God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people.”
Our hope and prayer is to see God bring together people from all across our region committed to gospel-centered ministry for the next generation. Through prayerful collaboration, we long to see the gospel strengthen our churches, reach the lost, and shine brightly in our communities--all to the glory of God. This chapter provides a place where you can find likeminded believers who share in the beliefs outlined in TGC's Foundation Documents. The goal is to develop gospel-centered friendships with others--to pray for each other, and strategize how we can best reach this area with the gospel.
