First Five Years is a 9Marks Conference meant to encourage and instruct new pastors.
If you're new in your ministry—perhaps in the first years of a church plant, or beginning a pastorate in a new place, or still preparing for ministry in seminary—then this conference is for you. We would also love for seasoned pastors who devote themselves to training men for ministry to attend.
With brothers from around the country and beyond, 9Marks intends for First Five Years to provide practical counsel from God's Word and to facilitate fellowship between new pastors.
We hope you'll join us in August.
