Pastor Mark Dever will speak at Cedarville University’s morning chapel service on February 14 and 15, 2012 as part of the 9Marks Pastors Conference, at which he is the keynote speaker.

He is the president of 9Marks and has taught at a number of seminaries.

9Marks is a ministry dedicated to equipping church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources. The organization believes that the local church is the focal point of God’s plan for displaying His glory to the nations, and that the Bible is sufficient for the life of the church.

The nine marks are (1) expositional preaching, (2) biblical theology, (3) a biblical understanding of the good news, (4) a biblical understanding of conversion, (5) a biblical understanding of evangelism, (6) biblical church membership, (7) biblical church discipline, (8) biblical discipleship and growth, and (9) biblical church leadership.
