This is the second ever Jesus 12 24 (though unlike the first, this isn’t going 24hrs straight) but it has the additonal theme of “return”. Just where that’ll be taken… you’ll have to wait and see.

Brandi Miller: “My name is Brandi Miller I’m a 26-year-old campus minister in Eugene, Oregon, so I guess that makes me a professional Christian- God have mercy. I have spent the last chunk of years having my life wrecked by Jesus in the best way possible particularly around issues of injustice in the world, accountability to scripture, experiencing holistic personhood, and non-violence. I identify as a Black, female, Jesus follower and will talk about such matters of identity on the regular. I’m an INTP who is slowly transitioning to an ENTP…or at least I think so.”

ABOUT JESUS 12 24: RETURN
We all love (parts of) conferences. Getting to hear incredible speakers engage with topics that matter to us, offering fresh insights, blowing our minds with their passion and knowledge. We love the chance of getting to hear from someone we wouldn’t normally get the chance to hear. You know the parts we don’t tend to love? Travel, expenses, awkward small talk, having to get out of our comfy clothes. Jesus 12 24: Return is all the best parts of a conference, at a very reasonable price. Being online we are able to cut down on costs as we cut down on emissions, so we’re gathering a worldwide lineup that you’d never normally be able to get in one place at one time. Not only that, Jesus 12 24 is the only conference where you can decide to bail the day before and still get all the great content delivered to you later. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
