“The archives for the 2018 When Leaders Lead Conference is available now! Enjoy all main sessions by special guest speaker, Kay Arthur, and workshops from the auditorium. We look forward to announcing a podcast with the recorded workshops soon. Stay tuned!”

MLK50 Conference
“The 50th anniversary of King’s tragic death marks an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the state of racial unity in the church and the culture. It creates the occasion to reflect on where Christians have been and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.”

“The Final Call of John Perkins”The Gospel Coalition
“At 87 years old, John Perkins is ready for his eighth career. After being a janitor, welder, equipment designer, Bible teacher, civil-rights activist, community developer, and author, Perkins wants to ‘devote the rest of my life to biblical reconciliation.’ It would be hard to find someone better qualified.”

“Is Jesus Superior to All Other Religious Leaders”North American Mission Board“Unfortunately, David’s [college student] experience is a common one for college students. Often raised in Christian homes and conservative churches, they are confounded when tenets of their faith are challenged by authoritative figures such as college professors.”

“Why Does Philosophy Get a Bad Rap with Christianity?”OneMinuteApologist
“Norman Geisler explains why some Christians have developed an allergy to philosophy.”

“BBC’s Religion Editor Martin Bashir: Why Christianity is Still Relevant This Easter”RadioTimes
“Bashir describes his conversion to Christianity – and why Easter isn’t just about chocolate”

“My History Teacher Says ‘The Gospels are Unreliable'”Be Thinking
“Whether it’s World War One, the Tudors or Ancient Egypt, the approach is the same. Your history teacher guides you in handling these sources, helping you ask the right questions: is it from an eyewitness? Was it written long after the event? How does it compare with other sources from the time? Do we have any reason to doubt the reliability of the author? But sometimes all this seems to go out the window. When it comes to talking about Jesus, your otherwise rigorous history teacher dismisses the Gospels in a moment.”

“My Confession: Toward a More Balanced Gospel”Paul Tripp
“I am writing today, on the day following the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., because I have a humbling confession to make.For all of my passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ, which has been accurate and faithful to the best of my ability, the gospel that I have held so dear has been, in reality, a truncated and incomplete gospel.”

“True Peacemakers”Back to Basics
“When you hear the term “peacemaker,” who do you think of? The Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev, John Lennon? As noble as the efforts of some people have been in promoting peace, these are not the kind of people Jesus was referring to when He said, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers’ (Matthew 5:9).”
