Courage and Conviction in an Age of Compromise

Saturday, November 4, 2023 | Staverton Park Hotel & Golf Club, Daventry

Christian courage is a virtue that grows out of deep conviction firmly rooted in Christ and his Word-revelation. Courage takes this Word to be the final authority over all of life. We are in urgent need of courageous Christians today who will resist the demoralizing and decadent urge to compromise, whilst boldly championing gospel truth, engaging culture and graciously persuading others in the fear of the Lord.



Join the Ezra Institute & Christian Concern for the inaugural Mission of God UK conference.  We pray you all will be able to attend this conference and be a part of what we are believing will help spark a Christ-centered transformation in Europe.
