Winter CONFERENCE 2018
FEBRUARY 2 - 4 | Rockbridge
about the theme
Navigating grace and truth in our personal sexuality is challenging enough, add to that a sexually permissive culture and the church's spotty history in loving the LGBTQ community, and Christians can feel like giving up. Winter Conference 2018 will offer a vision of how Jesus approaches us, our culture and the topic of sexuality with compassion and hope.
EARLY BIRD | By Dec. 31 | $125
STANDARD | Jan. 1 - 28 | $135
LATE | After Jan. 28 | $145
*Online Registration Closes Jan. 31
Deposit: $45 (non-refundable)
