Islay Sold Out


Three Days of Theology, Worship & Distillery Tours ...

If you are a gentleman who appreciates theology and fine scotch, we are hosting a small, exclusive retreat to the Island of Islay, Scotland in August 2018. John Crowder and Dr. C. Baxter Kruger, together with worship leader Godfrey Birtill will spend three days of conversation, theological discussion and worship together, along with tours to the local distilleries of Lagavulin and Laphraoig in the remote home of Scotland’s greatest single malts. This one-time, unique getaway is designed to provide a few days of informal hang out, living room conversations and personal one-on-one interaction as we explore the mystical gospel of the Triune God of grace. Glean some intimate time with John, Baxter and Godfrey with mini-lectures, Q&A, live music and ... well ... a few healthy drams of usquebaugh. Academy recognized doctors of theology and fringe charismatic loons are not supposed to be friends by definition. But as the Lord draws us back to the marriage of Trinitarian theology together with supernatural Holy Spirit experience, we are seeing a convergence of streams and a fresh reformation as we return to both the spirit and the message championed by the early church fathers. Come aside, treat yourself to a holiday and dive into rich discussion in an atmosphere of joy unspeakable ... on the historic, picturesque isle known for the world's peatiest, smokiest full-bodied scotches.
