The Use of Reformation Prophesyings to Implement Second London Confessions 26.11 in Southern Baptist Churches
Robert Michael Head
After establishing the foundations of the Second London Confession, a formal program implementing this confession point in today's Southern Baptist congregation is examined. In this model, those holding the office of elder in the local church would serve as examples and facilitators in establishing cohorts of preachers for regular training, edification, correction, and oversight. Modeled after the early Reformed tradition of "prophesyings," these meetings would see gatherings where all present preach from a previously-declared text, with subsequent feedback for the purpose of development.
