As our nation continues to be embroiled in controversy concerning race and social justice, many churches have followed suit, applying Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality to these issues. This conference seeks to expose CRT/I teaching for what it really is: a false religion. Join us as we highlight the truthfulness of the gospel, protect Christ’s people from the error, and equip the church to engage our communities with true biblical justice.
