TGC Iowa exists to provide a platform for pastoral fellowship around a gospel-centered theology and to widely promote gospel-centered ministry throughout our state.
The beliefs of the Eastern Iowa Chapter of The Gospel Coalition, as expressed in the Founding Documents of TGC, will be accomplished by gathering local pastors for fellowship, encouragement, and training in gospel-centered ministry and by offering public events to the broader community that help renew and increase our appreciation and love for Jesus.
Who are we for?
Local pastor fellowship groups are open to any current full-time church staff members. TGC Iowa events are open to the public.
What do we do?
TGC Iowa serves our community in two ways:
First, we host three groups each with regularly scheduled meetings for ministers. Our members meet in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area, the Cedar Rapids area, and the Iowa City area. Consisting of content and fellowship, each of these groups give attention to fellowship, various theological issues and training and often attendees continue the discussion over lunch.
Second, our chapter offers annual or bi-annual regional events open to the public. We design events that aim to encourage local people, Christian or not, to daily engage with Jesus, the Gospel, and the Christian faith from a God-centered perspective. At these events, simply put, we seek to renew the contemporary Iowa church with the ancient truths of the Chrisitan faith. Our next large gathering will be April 28th, 2018 in Cedar Rapids with Jared Wilson.
