In a world on fire with every kind of division imaginable—from religious to political to racial and beyond—how do we engage the world around us without fear? How do we know when to stand and speak, how to show both conviction and kindness, and how both to speak the truth and pursue unity for the sake of the gospel?

These are challenging questions, but the Bible gives us answers. Join us in Texas at the Gaylord Texan on October 3–5, 2019, as we hear from pastors, experts, and leaders address questions such as:

  • Why are our churches torn apart by tribalism, and what can we do to build unity?
  • How can we engage politics for the common good and yet get along with those who disagree?
  • How do we stand for a Christian sexual ethic when to do so costs us social capital?
  • What does courage look like in the face of sexual abuse, racial injustice, and abuse of power?
  • What kinds of political issues should pastors engage, and which should they avoid?
  • How can we speak in ways that persuade rather than inflame?

In a world torn apart by division, in a social media environment that dehumanizes rather than edifies, it’s time for Christians to show the world a better way. This is a conference for pastors and lay leaders, men and women, to learn what the Bible says about how we should stand and speak and how we should lead our families and churches for the cause of Christ.
