The Christian libertarian movement has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 6 years, and LibertarianChristians.com has been at the forefront of that growth. Even so, all of us Christian libertarians still encounter difficulties organizing and networking to help spread liberty ideas with our fellow Christians. Social networks, such as the Christian libertarian Facebook group, have had some success in bringing Christian libertarians together online, but it is time for us to take the next step forward. Therefore, LCC invites you to join us in Austin, Texas on August 2nd, 2014 for the first ever Christians for Liberty Conference.
Never before has there been an event like this. We 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!
