The City Outreach Conference is designed to equip our members to contextually apply the gospel and good works in a diverse community. We invite gifted teachers and thinkers in this area to instruct our members in practical ways to engage cross-culturally.
ENGAGE: Cross-cultural Relationships and Evangelism
Guest Speaker: Walter Strickland
FBCD members were equipped to build relationships in order to share the gospel across cultural, racial and class lines.
Discipleship in the Urban Context
Guest Speakers: Dr. Carl Ellis and Derrick Smith
FBCD members learned how the Urban Context moved from being a place of hope to hopelessness. The primary answer to the hopelessness in the city is for discipleship to focus on Jesus Christ in a contextually appropriate manner.
Endure the Race
Guest Speakers: Rick Lesh and Matthew Hodges
FBCD members were encouraged to look to Jesus Christ to endure ministry in under-resourced and unengaged communities.
