Gospel Identity Conference
November 17-18, 2017

In this two-day special event, pastor Tim Keller will teach how a Christian identity can be understood, embodied, and galvanized to serve those around us. We will also explore the alternative, often hidden identities that may be shaping our lives. We’ll learn how grace enables radical forgiveness and immense trust, and how Christ’s work is one that reorders what we love and deepens who we are. All Redeemer churches will join together to focus on spiritual formation, practices, and calling. In addition to extensive teaching and Q and A with Keller, the weekend will include worship, breakouts, and practical tools to help foster our growth as disciples of Christ.

This is the first of three marquee events to bring together all Redeemer congregations and ministries to focus on formation, practices, and callings. They will include teaching, worship, breakouts, and practical tools to help foster growth as a disciple. Save the date for the future conferences listed below.

Would you like to be considered for a volunteer role?
Volunteers play an integral role in bringing cohesion, quality and gospel focus to our conference. In other words, we cannot successfully execute our conference and serve our constituents without the help of volunteers. Our volunteers help set the tone as they set-up the space for conference programs, interface with conference attendees and are present to support the Redeemer team. We ask that our volunteers be faithfully present, flexible and ready to serve during the conference weekend.
