SAVE THE DATE: January 6-8, 2020

Featuring presentations by C.R. Wiley, Steve Jeffery, and Rich Lusk, the Christendom Lectures will offer instruction on how God’s people should respond to suffering and persecution in the twenty-first century. The Christendom Lectures are not intended for church leaders alone but for stirring up all members of the Church to love and good works. The lecture series on Through the Fire: The Glorious Suffering of the Church will be held January 6-8, 2020 at Church of the Redeemer in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Beyond listening to the speakers' presentations, guests at the Christendom Lectures will be able to sing and pray during matins, enjoy meals and fellowship with one another, peruse offerings from several book vendors, and ring in the Epiphany season with a musical performance of one of Johanna Sebastian Bach's Epiphany Cantatas.
