CHURCH AND CULTURE CONFERENCE
“Sharing Christ in a Politically Correct Environment” will be the theme of the Church and Culture Conference, a ministry of the Wisconsin Association of Regular Baptist Churches, April 28, at Calvary Baptist Church in Wisconsin Rapids. Jon Jenks, WARBC state representative, says, “You’re a follower of Christ and you know the importance of telling others about God’s love for them. The difficulty is how to do that in a place or situation where gospel conversations are not welcome. How do you share Christ with others knowing that it may cost your job, position, or relationship? The goal of this year’s conference is to help think through this crucial issue.” For more information regarding the conference and livestream opportunities, see thechurchandculture.com.
