On March 14, 2017, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary will host a Talking Points conference on Bible backgrounds and preaching. Bible scholars and pastors will come together to discuss how and why to study and communicate the ancient world of the Bible.
The conference will go from 8:30am to 4:00pm (check-in starts at 8:00am). It'll be a great day to network with fellow pastors and ministry leaders.
