We are very excited about the Christians For Liberty 2016 Conference this coming August 6th, and we are proud to welcome ten excellent speakers to teach and encourage you in your learning about Christian faith and libertarianism. Over the next few days, we will be posting brief bios of the speakers so you can get to know them a little better (make sure to read Part 1 and the upcoming Part 3). Today, meet the ladies of CFL! Have you reserved your seat at the conference yet? Sign up today!
Wait a second, before I tell you more about these great women, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Elise and Jacqueline are doing a joint talk at CFL about a top-secret Christian libertarian book project that’s been going on for a while now. I am thrilled that we will get to introduce you to it first at the Libertarian Christian Institute. Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for more on this exciting new project.
