Do you know what Jesus spoke of most during his earthly ministry? His kingdom. This kingdom to which he referred was not an ambiguous or metaphorical kingdom. It was and is a kingdom that has been progressively revealed to God’s people throughout all of human history, through his word. From Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 the Bible tells one grand story about a king and his kingdom. Join the women of Veritas for this special event as we walk through the storyline of scripture to learn more about Christ our King and the kingdom over which he is the unrivaled ruler. Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and conference materials are included in registration fee.

God gives us specific vocations for how we are to do his kingdom work, but we also all have general vocations as image bearers of God. One of those general vocations is to tend and keep the earth – God’s creation – as his servant rulers and to fill it with his glory. What does this look like, and what does this have to do with the gospel and Christ’s kingdom? We’ll talk about creation, incarnation, resurrection, and the restoration of all things – and how these big things might affect our daily lives.

We are called to live as citizens of God’s kingdom, beginning with our immediate spheres of influence. In this breakout session, we will consider how we might more effectively, joyfully, and seamlessly live out the gospel in the workplace – whether in an office, clinic, classroom, or dining room. We will discuss the theology of work, practical implications for working to the glory of God, and how to grow in our relationship with the Lord both in and through our work.

Google “social justice” and you’ll find a myriad of definitions, ideas, criticisms, and even different biblical interpretations. It is passionately defended and also confusingly misrepresented – so how are we as Christians to know what to think or how to respond? This breakout session panel will focus on hearing from those who are actively showing social justice through generosity – from a kingdom perspective in an upside down world. You’ll be inspired and challenged to consider new ways to understand social justice and to give your time, talent, treasure, and neighborliness to a hurting world around you.

The Church are God’s people who have been bought with a price and called to be holy and distinct. As the Church, we have covenanted with our brothers and sisters in Christ to encourage one another, bear one anothers burdens, sharpen each other, and more. In this session, we will discuss the challenges that accompany this calling and why discipling each other in the Church is given to us for our good.

God has bestowed the gift of contented singleness upon some accompanied by a call to powerful Kingdom-advancing work (1 Cor. 7:7,32), sometimes in conspicuous ways – think Jesus, Paul, John Stott – and sometimes inconspicuously. More commonly, God’s gift is marriage and children. The call to pursue profound Kingdom expansion in and through the family is just as compelling, if not more complicated, as it is in the life of a single saint. This call for families to build the Kingdom and raise Citizens is consistent with the “very good” purposes God had for Adam’s family even before their fall. This panel will explore how God’s Word calls families into a “peculiar” way of life, and how His Spirit empowers parents through the Gospel to intentionally transform their daily routine into a display of the virtues and perfections of Him who has called them (1 Peter 2:9).
