The Foundations Conference is a pastors conference organized by SermonAudio with a special emphasis on the themes of prayer and preaching. The basis of this burden is centered around Acts 6:4, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.”

Dr. Steven Lawson is typically joined by a unique blend of other featured speakers on SermonAudio.

The dual conference themes of prayer and preaching reflect the realization that only ministries grounded in the faithful exposition of the Word and upheld by prayer have the power to effect any lasting changes in their hearers. Our goal is to establish a conference that not only maintains this reminder but also provides an opportunity for church leaders to enjoy a respite from ministry and engage in meaningful fellowship with other ministers.

Why Another Conference?

It has been our desire to organize a conference that seeks to glorify God both in its emphasis as well as in its experience. We believe the emphasis of prayer and the ministry of the Word is one that all Bible-believing ministries with a heart to make an impact on their generation can rally around. And by experience, we simply seek to remove all obstacles and controversies surrounding many of today's conferences so that all that is left is all that is essential.

  • A conference that features a unique blend of speakers on SermonAudio.
    Speakers in the past included: Steven Lawson, Conrad Mbewe, Steve Pettit, Phil Johnson, Joel Beeke, Todd Friel, Paul Washer, Geoff Thomas, and others.

  • A conference that seeks to maintain a modest yet effective environment for fellowship and interaction with speakers.
  • A conference that features a cappella hymn singing for its beauty in simplicity.
  • A conference that provides lunches & refreshments for all attending.
  • A conference that provides discounts with a featured bookseller.
  • A conference that provides an opportunity for attendees to enjoy NYC sites.

  • If possible, a conference that seeks to coordinate the conference dates the same week of the Lincoln Center Handel's Messiah performance, typically the week before Christmas.

In summary, it is our desire to organize a conference whereby the staff of SermonAudio can generously serve the speakers, pastors, and church leaders that attend. We feel that it is important to make every effort to forge new friendships among God's people.

New York City

Year after year, we have chosen New York City as the location of The Foundations Conference. D. L. Moody once said that “Cities are the centers of influence. Water runs downhill, and the highest hills in America are the great cities. If we can stir them we shall stir the whole country.”

In the providence of God, the New York Gospel Mission has maintained a physical presence in the heart of Manhattan just a few blocks away from the Empire State Building at a time when many other Christian organizations have been forced to leave the city. NYGM operates their Gospel ministry out of a small, historic church building on 26th Street and has partnered with SermonAudio to host these conferences.

All Conferences

Though not guaranteed, we seek to host The Foundations Conference every other year. All conferences are webcast and recorded for your enjoyment below:
