Last month, Mark Dever and Ligon Duncan announced that the T4G conference planned for April 2022 in Louisville will be the last. The successful pastors’ conference spanned 16 years, gathering Reformed pastors from a range of denominations. The most recent in-person conference, in 2018, drew more than 12,000. Attendees have loved the preaching, the music, the books, and the fellowship. So it was a surprise to hear it’s coming to an end.

Sarah Zylstra explains how T4G got started, why it was a risk, and what has changed since.
