The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention exists in part to provide practical resources for Southern Baptist churches, leaders, and members. One important means of providing resources is an annual National Conference. This year, the National Conference is on Parenting. The slate of speakers is outstanding and the topics are vital to the health of families and churches, ranging from discussing parenting and spiritual warfare, the family life of Christian leaders to pressing on if you fail as a parent. Time and money, however, make attending the event impossible for most of our students. The good news is that we can bring a portion of the event to students! Attached are two PDF files. One is a schedule of all event times, provided by the ERLC. The other is a Promo flyer with the NOBTS live stream schedule and information about the Kid's Camp.
