Welcome to the official page for the Christians for Liberty 2017 Conference.
Even if you can’t make it this year, will you help us out by sharing this page with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter? Thanks!
After several years of holding in-person conferences in Austin, Texas, it became clear that no matter how good the content, it would always be a challenge for the vast majority of LCI’s supporters to travel for the event. So this year, we’re trying something different to significantly reduce costs and increase convenience for attendees by moving the conference to the internet.
The conference will be a half-day event (approximately 4 hours) conducted via the Crowdcast platform. As with past in person conferences, you will be able to ask questions of the speakers during Q&A sessions. Please consult this page from Crowdcast to test your computer and/or mobile platform for compatibility.
The registration fee is only $10 for the live stream. We encourage you to host viewing parties amongst your churches, communities, families, friends, local groups, student organizations, or whatever else using your single live stream; please just inform us how many people you intend to have at any viewing parties so that we can get the most accurate attendance information possible. The registration process will ask you to estimate how many people you expect to have at a viewing party, and we will likely conduct a poll during the event to see how many people actually attended via a viewing party.
The conference will take place on the Crowdcast platform. Please consult this page from Crowdcast to test your computer and/or mobile platform for compatibility. While a support representative from Crowdcast will be available during the event, we cannot guarantee that technical support will be available for every individual attendee, so please make sure your system is compatible in advance.
Once again, please click here to register for the 2017 Christians for Liberty E-Conference. We look forward to seeing you online this November 18th!
