A “Table of Contents” for the Desiring God Pastor’s Conferences

I often think “I wish there was a _______”  That is usually a signal that I should think about creating one.

Until 2011 the conferences usually revolved around one main speaker (three messages) and a couple other guys who gave a single message.  In 2012 it was broadened beyond one main person.  Every year at the pastor’s conference, Piper gives an biographical message on some figure from church history.  I’ve included the relevant information
