2018 Pastor Summit
Ministry in the age of Gender Confusion
Tuesday, September 11th

Registration begins at 8:30 am
Join hundreds of pastors as we address what it looks like to live out the gospel in an age of gender confusion. Hear speakers talk about the biblical approach to loving those struggling with gender confusion or same sex attraction and enjoy the opportunity to discuss these issues with other ministry leaders.
