Speaking the Truth in Love

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

Registration opens April 1st


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?


Churches and ministries in St. Louis host an annual gathering that promotes real talk about Christian unity and black leadership in today’s Church.
