This one-day conference is designed to help us explore how to live in the necessary tension between a deeper personal relationship with God and the call to act boldly in his name.
Plan to spend a rich day exploring the relationship between courage and contemplation through two messages by exemplary keynote speakers, facilitated small group conversations and a panel presentation. Leave challenged to apply the teachings in your relationship with God, yourself, and others.
This year’s conference has passed. However, if you would like to watch
footage from the day, videos are available on YouTube.
