A DANIEL TRAINING NETWORK CONFERENCE

The One Hope, One Boast Conference is a gathering organized for the purpose of encouraging disciples of Jesus to place their sole confidence in the cross (our “boast”; Ga 6:14), as they wait patiently for the return of Jesus (our “blessed hope”; Tit 2:13).

One Hope: The Second Coming

It [the grace of God] teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness…while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ…

Titus 2:12-13

One Boast: Messiah Crucified

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world…

Galations 6:14


Conference Theme

The Spirit’s Witness: Living and Proclaiming the Gospel by God’s Power


In Acts 1, Jesus gives His disciples an urgent and sober task to carry out in the interim between His ascension and that long-anticipated time (see, e.g., Is. 40, 62; Zc. 14) when He will return and “restore the kingdom to Israel” (Ac. 1:6): Being His “witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Ac. 1:8b, NIV). However, He knew that apart from “the promise of the Father” (Ac 1:4)—that is, the Holy Spirit by means of whose coming those witnesses would be “clothed with power from on high” (Lk. 24:49)—the mission would be fruitless, powerless, and ineffective. Therefore, He prefaces the assignment with these words: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you” (Ac. 1:8a, NIV). Like our spiritual forebears, we, too, if we are to be effective witnesses and faithfully represent our Lord to the world in both word and deed, desperately need the power of the Holy Spirit to operate through us and in our midst. Our own witness, like that of our spiritual forebears, is doomed to futility apart from the Spirit’s witness. This year’s One Hope, One Boast Conference, therefore, will be dedicated to examining different aspects of the Holy Spirit’s work and ministry. What does it mean to be a faithful “witness” to the gospel, and why is the Spirit’s power so vital to that process? What is the framework within which the apostles understood and interpreted the Spirit’s work? What does Paul mean when he refers to the Holy Spirit as a “down payment” (Eph. 1:14), “seal” (1 Cor. 1:22, Eph. 1:13, 4:30), and “deposit” (2 Cor. 1:22)? Why does he encourage us to “earnestly desire the spiritual gifts” (1 Cor. 14:1), and what does it look like for those gifts to be stewarded responsibly and in a way that brings glory to God? How does the Spirit shape us in patterns of thinking and behaving that differ from those of the world around us? How does the Spirit’s work in and through “jars of clay” (2 Cor. 4:7) serve to magnify the gospel? These are the types of questions we will be exploring together at this year’s conference. We invite you to join us (in person or online) for what we pray will be a time of rich fellowship, sound instruction, powerful worship and prayer, edifying conversation, and strengthening ministry through the Spirit’s power.
