We need to be crystal clear about CFL conference registration – registration is not closed for good!
The early registration deadline at a reduced price has passed, but you can still join us at the first-ever Christians for Liberty Conference for just $30 per adult and $15 per student. (Children 16 and under are still free, but we ask that you let us know you are bringing them!)
The sooner you can let us know you are attending, the better prepared we can be with great food, a great space, and great fellowship opportunities for everyone. Ready to sign up? Click here for full details and the registration form.
We look forward to seeing you in Austin on August 2nd (and for our panel and social on August 1st)!
I am pleased to announce that on the night before the Christians for Liberty Conference (August 1, Friday), we will be hosting a panel discussion and ice cream social for all conference attendees – and anyone else who wants to attend! The theme will be “Ask An Austin Activist Anything”, or AAAAA. Yes, really. Join me, CFL speaker Jason Rink, and Patrick Dixon and Lauren Daugherty of the Libertarian Party of Texas for some Q&A about how we view libertarianism and Christian faith, and how we engage our communities. After the panel, we of course encourage everyone to stick around for some great fellowship. Here are the details:
Date/Time: Friday, August 1st, 7 p.m.
Place: University Avenue Church of Christ Campus Center (first floor), 1903 University Avenue, Austin, TX
Directions and Parking: UA Church of Christ is located next to the UT-Austin campus at the corner of University Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. At that intersection, you can head north on University and see the parking lot to the right as you pass by. Take a right on 20th street and then another right to loop around and enter that parking lot. You can also find street parking and nearby paid lots if the church lot is full. Do not park in the sorority parking lot at 20th and University, you will be towed! The campus center is the building on the north side of the church lot (you can’t miss it). See the following map for additional details.
This event is open to all attendees, but if you can’t make it because you are traveling then don’t fret! Enjoy your trip and be ready for a great conference on Saturday.

If you are a member of Liberty.me, then join me this Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 8:30 EST (7:30 CST) for a presentation on Christianity and libertarianism. We will have a good time discussing the fundamental ideas and history behind Christian libertarianism with plenty of opportunity for Q&A. I am very grateful to Matt Gilliland, one of the Liberty.me organizers, for helping get this going.
Here is the description from Liberty.me page:
“How does theology relate to political philosophy? Can a Christian be a libertarian? Should a Christian be a libertarian? Dr. Norman Horn, founder of LibertarianChristians.com and organizer of the Christians for Liberty Conference will join us Thursday, June 12th at 8:30pm EDT to explore these questions and more.”

Registration is now open for the Christians for Liberty 2014 Conference! It took us quite a while to get all the details aligned for the venue and registration, but everything is now coming together nicely. Go to the official conference page and register today! Here are a few of the additional details of interest…
Never before has there been an event like this. We fully expect to have well over 100 dedicated Christian libertarians gathered together for the express purpose of fellowship, equipping, and encouragement, enabling us all to make a difference in ourselves, in our churches, and in our communities, all for Christ and for liberty. I hope that you are as excited as I am about this conference and the future of the Christian libertarian movement. This promises to be a new beginning for all of us as we seek to engage the church and the world with big ideas and loving hearts. I look forward to seeing you in Austin this August! Read More→
We received a very positive response from everyone regarding the Christians for Liberty Conference to be held this summer. Initially, we had not set a date and we asked you for your input through a brief survey. Many thanks to all the respondents who took the survey. If every single one of you shows up, there will easily be over 100 people present already!
More importantly, we are now ready to announce that August 2nd, 2014 is the date set for the conference. It will be indeed be in Austin, Texas, and we are fervently planning for your arrival even today.
Registration will be open this week, but we are not 100% ready to open the gates quite yet. Still, I am so excited about what is going to happen that I could not resist posting a little more about it for you. There will be more to come in the very near future as well!
