Semper Reformanda 2019

About The Conference

The Semper Reformanda (Always Reforming) Conference addresses the church's need to continually reform to the image of Christ.  

In keeping with our Baptist Reformed tradition, we address a different section of the 1689 London Baptist Confession at each conference.

The 2019 Semper Reformanda Conference will be discussing the doctrines found in the third chapter of the confession: "The Decree of God."


Dr. Tom Ascol

Tom serves as the President of Founders Ministries. He has served as a Pastor of Grace Baptist Church since 1986. Prior to moving to Florida he served as pastor and associate pastor of churches in Texas. He has a BS degree in sociology from Texas A&M University (1979) and has also earned the MDiv and PhD degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Tom has served as an adjunct professor of theology for Reformed Theological Seminary, The Midwest Center for Theological Studies (now Covenant Baptist Seminary), Reformed Baptist Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Tom has edited and contributed to several books, including Dear Timothy and Redeeming the Gospel and Reforming Churches. He has authored two books, From the Protestant Reformation to the Southern Baptist Convention and "Traditional Theology" and the SBC.

Dr. Voddie Baucham

Voddie Baucham wears many hats. He is a husband, father, former pastor, author, professor, conference speaker, and church planter. He currently serves as Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia.

Voddie makes the Bible clear and demonstrates the relevance of God’s word to everyday life. However, he does so without compromising the centrality of Christ and the gospel. Those who hear him preach find themselves both challenged and encouraged.

Voddie’s area of emphasis is Cultural Apologetics. Whether teaching on classical apologetic issues like the validity and historicity of the Bible, or the resurrection of Christ; or teaching on biblical manhood/womanhood, marriage and family, he helps ordinary people understand the significance of thinking and living biblically in every area of life.

Voddie and his wife, Bridget have been married since 1989. They have nine children: Jasmine, Trey (Voddie, III), Elijah, Asher, Judah, Micah, Safya, Amos, and Simeon.
