Speaking the Truth in Love

LDR 2017 – September 1, 2, 3 in Saint Louis, MO

Registration is open

Ephesians chapter 2 informs us of the unity the Jesus has won for the Church, His body. So what’s keeping us apart? What habits, assumptions and disagreements are dividing us today?

This year, we will gather to talk about being built into one body, God’s household should be known for speaking the truth in love. We will interact with this theme, taken from Ephesians 4, on the topics of workplace disputes, gender equality, youth and children’s ministry, anti-racism work and allyship, humanitarian tourism in missions, and much more.

Join us! Registration is open now.
