Make plans now to join old friends and make new ones at this summer’s Big Tent conference in St. Louis, July 6-8. The theme of this year’s conference is Race, Reconciliation, and the Reformation. Through plenary events, Bible study, workshops, and worship, attendees will be challenged and renewed by the power of the gospel message to overcome our current realities of anxiety, division, and inequality.
The three-day event, held on the beautiful campus of Washington University in St. Louis, will provide a variety of opportunities to engage with issues facing the church and society today. In addition to a selection of nearly 50 workshops on a variety of topics, participants can join in morning Bible study led by Dr. Eric Barreto of Princeton Theological Seminary and hear from local church leaders about the struggles the St. Louis community has faced around issues of inequality. PC(USA) Stated Clerk the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson will preach at the opening worship on Thursday, and the Rev. Dr. Christine Hong of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will preach at Saturday’s closing worship.
