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 we need to keep pressing forward.
Last year, we hosted the first-ever Christians for Liberty Conference in Austin, Texas. Over 115 dedicated Christians came together for an intense weekend full of great speakers, fellowship with fellow libertarian Christians, and experiences with some of the best organizations in Texas and throughout the United States. It was the beginning of a new era for those of us who love Christ and liberty, and starting from there we have endeavored to use that momentum to further this cause by starting small group meet-ups across the United States and much more.
Today I am happy to announce that the dates have been set for the Christians for Liberty 2015 Conference, and you can now mark your calendar for August 7th and 8th, 2015! Once again, you are invited to join us at Austin’s own St. Edwards University for an experience like none other.
I am also particularly proud to welcome Dr. Lawrence Reed as our first keynote speaker at the conference. Dr. Reed is the president of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and the recent author of Rendering Unto Caesar: Was Jesus a Socialist?, a monograph dismantling the notion that Jesus had visions of income redistribution via government fiat.
We said it last year, but we’ll say it again: you will not find any event like this anywhere else. Getting just a few Christian libertarians together in the same place can be difficult – putting hundreds in the same room is something you cannot miss! I hope that you are as excited as I am about this conference and the future of the Christian libertarian movement. I look forward to seeing you in Austin this August!
