Gospel Family Conference

Equipping our families to worship God together

Gospel Family Conference

Our goal for Gospel Family Conference is to be equipped with a biblical vision and passion for raising the next generation of children in our church in the fear of the Lord. We will spend this weekend learning how the Gospel can be brought into our homes. Our families can be transformed in a way that brings God much glory, and leads us to live within God's design and heart for our homes.

This year's theme is Gospel Family Mission. Our main sessions will be led by our speaker for the weekend, Jonathan Williams, the Executive Director of Gospel Family Ministries, Blair Robinson, Lead Pastor, and Justin Flores, Discipleship Pastor. Our breakout groups on Saturday will be led by members of our First Irving Staff. We would invite you to sign-up for this year's Gospel Family Conference.

Cost: $20 a person, which includes Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and childcare.

Dr. Jonathan Williams launched Gospel Family Ministries in 2014 in hopes of encouraging families to bring the Gospel into their homes. A year later, his book, Gospel Family, was published, providing a resource for families and churches who long to see their families walking with Christ. Jonathan enjoys this family-equipping ministry alongside his wife, Jessica, and their three children, Gracie, Silas & Elijah. With a heart for families and the church, Jonathan previously served for ten years as the senior pastor of Wilcrest Baptist Church, a multi-ethnic church with families from 50 different nations. Jonathan received his PhD in Family Ministry & Biblical Counseling through the School of Education at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he now teaches as an Adjunct Professor. Jonathan is also the Managing Editor of the Southwestern D6 Family Ministry Journal. Jonathan’s new book, A Practical Theology of Family Worship, was published in 2021.
