We have been blessed by Ligonier Ministries, Inc. for nearly twenty five years. We were drawn to the ministry when we read their charge: "teaching Christians why the believe what they believe." It was from this beginning that we were drawn to Dr. R.C. Sproul's book The Holiness of God and then numerous other books written by Dr. Sproul covering Scripture that drew us closer to our Lord. Over the years we have had the privilege of attending Conferences, which are a blessing in themselves, having the opportunity to hear and meet other great Reformed Theology ministers/educator/teachers. The ministry's monthly publication, Tabletalk, is the most Bible based devotional (and more!) we have ever encountered.
I tried to write an accurate portrayal of this ministry, each time I was kicked out before finishing. Check our who their top employees are (nepotism) with very high salaries, the lawsuit they filed in the past and their financial situation as submitted by www.minisrywatch.com.
I find R. C. Sproul Sr. teachings very biblically related, his messages are enlightening and I have listened to him for some years. However, I have to question the above. Do the research for yourself, should any ministry file a lawsuit against a blogger, hire basically his son-in-law to run the ministry without the proper experience?
I have been receiving "Tabletalk" and Dr. Sproul's cd's for several years now. I have an extensive collection of his teaching materials which has been extremely helpful in my roles as a bible study leader and Sunday School teacher. In the current atmosphere of "whatever works" evangelicalism, Ligonier has been my go-to ministry for sound, responsible theology and doctrine.
I first heard a broadcast of Renewing Your Mind with Dr. sproul on the radio about ten years ago and I can still remember how the words were like a tuning fork to my ear. Since then I have listened to and read countless messages from Dr. Sproul and his associates utilizing the vast array of resources: books, tapes, DVDs, Tabletalk magazine, online materials, and conferences, all of which has served to tremendously increase my understanding of scripture, theology, and Christian living. I highly recommend Ligonier Ministries' extensive resources to anyone who desires to follow the apostle Paul's exhortation to renew your mind!
My wife & I first experienced Ligonier Ministries by serving as volunteer workers at the 2000 National Conference. We have been blessed, since that initial conference with volunteer duties ranging from stuffing envelopes to coordinating volunteers for the past 10+ years for the ministry. We have thoroughly enjoyed staff interactions through the years, which includes major conferences 3 and 4 times per year utilizing 50 to 150 volunteer workers per each 3 day event. It is a delight to work with an organization that prays for our Lord to guide the ministry and provides biblical devotions each Friday for personnel who love the Lord. We pray God will continue to bless this ministry until He comes again.
