About Why Christian
When was the last time you heard a story that reminded you of why you are a Christian? When was the last time you gave and received testimony? When you attend the Why Christian conference you will encounter a group of speakers whose stories and work remind you of why, in spite of all its dysfunction, you remain a part of the sprawling and diverse family of God. Join Nadia Bolz-Weber and Rachel Held Evans as they introduce nine amazing practitioners – Evangelicals, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Baptists. Presbyterians, black, white, native, asian, queer, straight, doubters, dreamers, artists, preachers, and activists who remind us of why we are Christians.
