Shawn Mathis to Dialogue with Kevin Swanson on the NCFIC Controversy

Shawn Mathis, who sometimes comments on this blog, has come to terms with Kevin Swanson and one other pastor to do a dialogue on the Family Integrated Church controversy. While we haven’t found out if the church will be opening its doors, we do know that the event will at least be recorded in audio. Here is an advertising blurb from this website:

On April 2, 2012 in Denver, CO, an Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) symposium is planned to take place about family integrated churches and like matters. Speakers for the symposium, titled “The Family in Crisis: Three Pastoral Responses,” include the Revs. Kevin Swanson, Shawn Mathis, and Matthew Kingsbury; and Rev. Greg Thurston is to be the moderator.

The panelists are to 1) present their views on how the Church should respond to the difficulties faced by Christian families today, 2) interact with one another, and 3) take questions from the audience.

Park Hill Presbyterian Church is hosting the event.

Rev. Kingsbury announced the following about the event:

Held in conjunction with the next stated meeting of the Presbytery of the Dakotas, this evening is intended primarily to further discussion within the presbytery. As this is a matter of great concern to all the Churches, however, we earnestly desire the interest and input of all the brethren.

We are unsure as to whether the event is open to the general public; the main target audience is the OPC leadership.

Those who are not part of the OPC leadership but are interested in attending should contact Park Hill Presbyterian Church at

However, there are plans to make the event available at
