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 us (Nadia Bolz-Weber and Rachel Held Evans), as we introduce 8 amazing practitioners - Roman Catholics, Evangelicals, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Presbyterian, black, white, Asian, Latino, gay, straight, and transgender - who remind us of why we are Christians.

All who long for a clearer picture of what unites us as children of God are invited to listen, to share, and to believe once again.
