Featured Speakers

Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison
President, Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod

The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison is the 13th man to serve as president of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod since its founding in 1847. Harrison is the author of many books, including Christ Have Mercy: How to Put Your Faith in Action, and A Little Book on Joy. “Mercy is part of the DNA of the church,” says Harrison. “It was part of Jesus’ life. He cared for people in need. He spoke the word of forgiveness and cared. To be intentional about mercy in your congregation is very significant, because there are a lot of hurting people in the world.”

  

Rob Stadler
Devoted Christian, passionate scientist, and author of The Scientific Approach to Evolution

As Christians, God’s word should be our ultimate truth. Yet, society increasingly trusts science as the ultimate source of truth and many scientific discoveries seem to contradict the Bible. In his keynote presentation, “Resolving the Conflict between Faith and Science,” Stadler will address the apparent conflict between science and faith. “Science has offered many benefits to society, but we must remember that science has limitations,” Stadler says. “The conflicts between science and faith occur when science is stretched beyond it’s limitations, conveying a false sense of confidence in areas where is has little power to discern.”
