Description

The Justice Conference is an annual gathering to educate, inspire, and connect a generation around biblical and social justice, the vulnerable, and the oppressed. Through the lens of the gospel of grace, the conference explores the meaning of justice from places of brokenness in our world. It also invites participants into God's concern and commitment to the vulnerable and the oppressed among us while we yearn to see that which is not right made right.
