The Jerusalem Chamber is a unique collaborative effort between pastors Shawn Anderson, Kyle Borg, Nathan Eshelman, and Joel Wood to provide a round table discussion on the Westminster Confession of Faith.
The Jerusalem Chamber gets its name from the meeting room at Westminster Abbey where, from 1643-1653, the Westminster Divines met to produce, among other things, the Westminster Confession of Faith. This confession remains one of the most enduring summaries of evangelical truth and remains the teaching of Presbyterian churches. Far from being an irrelevant relic of the past, it is our belief that the health of the church depends on continuing to pattern our doctrine, worship, and piety after it.
There are many good commentaries and works that explore the theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith. The uniqueness of The Jerusalem Chamber podcast is that it provides an audio discussion with pastoral application of every paragraph of the confession. Join Shawn, Kyle, Nathan, and Joelâ€“four good friends and fellow pastors in the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North Americaâ€“as they discuss â€śthe humble advice of the Assembly of Divines.â€ť
Shawn Anderson grew up in Northwestern PA but has lived in Michigan, New York, and briefly in Washington and Texas. He professed faith in Christ in the summer of 1996 and he considers 1 Timothy 1:15 to be a text central to his life in Christ, â€śThis is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.â€ť He is married to Tammy and they are raising four young disciples in the fear and knowledge of the Lord, who supplies abundant daily grace. The Andersons enjoy fellowship around coffee and food, walks through the city, visiting playgrounds, and reading together. Shawn is the Minister of the Gospel at Sycamore Reformed Presbyterian Church in Kokomo, IN.
