Winter CONFERENCE 2020
YOU HAVE HEARD IT SAID…
FEBRUARY 7 - 9 | Rockbridge
about the theme
In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus used the refrain “you have heard it said” to name good but incomplete messages that his audience had received about what it meant to live in the Kingdom of God.
We all have been exposed to different ideologies and methods for achieving reconciliation between God and man. With the hardest topics in life and the ease with which everyone can post and repost opinions, sometimes it can feel as though there are a thousand different messages to sift and filter through. This couldn't be more true for the topic of racial justice. Many voices speak to various ideologies and methods and many things “have been said.”
We need to take time to identify what we have "heard it said" from friends, family, culture, and the Church, and name our own personal insecurities about racial reconciliation. By studying the words of Jesus, we can attune our ears to the One Who Has The Final Say over all things.

Andrew Givens & Brent Campbell
Andrew Givens (left) has been on staff with InterVarsity for 10 years and is an Area Director in Boston. Currently leading a staff team of seven, serving at 8 different chapters, in an area with 9 unplanted campuses. He longs to see students and staff lead from a place of deep intimacy that produces a deep witness reflected in a reconciling life. He’s freshly married (2 years!), a bit of a nerd, and likes to lift and watch Marvel movies.
Brent Campbell (right) grew up in Wilmington, NC as the son of a pastor. He would say that he grew up in an amazing home with bible-believing and earnest parents. Despite these blessings, he lived most of his life as a well-meaning Pharisee and had no real relationship with Christ. In his Junior year of college, Brent had a miraculous encounter with Jesus on his way to make a suicide attempt and it changed everything for him. He went on to get involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and is now the Campus Minister at UNC Charlotte where he spends most of his days discipling students, reaching out to non-Christians and exposing students to the joy of belonging to Christ. Brent is passionate about evangelism, practical discipleship among millennials, and the way that Jesus leads his body into the world as agents of racial reconciliation. He regularly teaches, speaks and facilitates content around these areas. He’s proud to be engaged to his fiancé, Brittney, so that he can take her off the market forever.
