New Wine Church & State Conference


In anticipation of our upcoming election season, many Christians are asking "Is there a Christian way to vote?" This conference will go beyond the "Christian voter card" to considering holistic ways of bringing our faith to bear in the public sector. We will explore the relationship between church and state, seeking to develop a Christian ethic for life in the public square. This will include consideration of the church as a prophetic witness to Christ's kingdom amidst the kingdoms of this world. From being a good neighbor, to filling out your ballot, to confronting and collaborating on redemptive systemic and structural change, we will work toward a comprehensive way of thinking about how our Christian faith shapes our public witness as we engage our government and our communities.

Speakers at this event will include David Austin (Mercy Corps, Program Director for operations in North Korea), Gloria Young (Young & Lamay Associates), Tom Krattenmaker (USA Today, religion columnist), T. Allen Bethel (Maranatha Church, Senior Pastor), Paul Louis Metzger (New Wine, Director), Brad Harper (New Wine, Associate Director), and others. Stay tuned for emerging details!

This conference will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 9 - 4pm at Multnomah Biblical SeminaryRegister by October 1 to take advantage of discounted rates! Once you've registered for the event, help us get the conversation started by liking us on Facebook or tweeting @nwnws and include #ChurchAndState.
