This exciting pre-conference will feature biblical, theological, and historical considerations of the role of the church relative to the state.

Six seasoned preachers and teachers of the Word will engage such topics as the mission of the church, the role of individual Christians in a fallen world, the way eschatology shapes our ecclesiology and experience, the meaning of “Christian nationalism” as a concept, and the centrality of gospel proclamation. Join us to hear from Dr. James White, Dr. Jeff Johnson, Dr. James Coates, Dr. Owen Strachan, Dr. Scott Aniol, and Dr. Jeff Moore. We’ll conclude our one-day event with a panel that will include Dr. Josh Buice and will feature lively, friendly, and reflective conversations on hot topics and biblical doctrines.
