How are we to live in and respond to an age that denies mankind's unique status as an image-bearer of God? Join us to discover the depth and power of God's law-word for the redemption of human sexuality.


Ezra Talks:  Practical Applications 

If you are a Church Leader, you’ll want to join your peers for a special evening of brief talks tailored toward encouraging one another in practically working out the Mission of God conference themes in the life of your congregation.

On Friday evening some of the conference speakers will briefly present on the practical outworking of the themes of the conference. From pastoral counseling for the parents of the gender confused to youth ministry to teens bombarded with propaganda and even navigating the legal realities of restrictive legislation for biblical faithful ministry there is no shortage of tough pastoral situations church leaders can find themselves in.  This evening will allow church leaders to spend some time hearing about the challenges facing all of us and discuss biblically faithful solutions. The night will include a substantial portion of Q&A.”

Light desert and refreshments will be provided.  The entire evening is provided at no charge to interested Church Leaders.
