In previous years, generous individuals have asked if they could scholarship someone hoping to attend but unable to afford it or if they can contribute directly to The Front Porch and Just Gospel. If you would like to support our mission of brokering “conversations about biblical faithfulness in African-American churches and beyond,” you can also donate via our EventBrite page.

No one saw the 2016 presidential election coming. No one predicted the effect the election would have on the country—and the Church. To some extent, our tribalism has been exposed and perhaps deepened. Unity has become more fragile.
In all likelihood, the Church will face the same stark choices and the same potential for misunderstanding, disunity and tribal politics. This time, however, we have an opportunity to approach politics and the election differently… like Christians… like the pilgrims and aliens we are in the world.
The goal of Just Gospel 2020 is NOT to engage in partisan debate or endorse any party’s platform. Nor is our goal to bind the consciences of attendees to a particular policy prescription the Bible does not require. We will not recommend or even comment on any candidate.
The Just Gospel 2020 conference goal is to help Christians think biblically and deeply about being Christians and taking our Christian identity and perspective into our political lives. We hope to aid each other in our discipleship. We are “strangers and exiles on the earth” who “desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one” (Heb. 11:13, 16). We hope to model how Christians who differ in secondary and political matters can nevertheless do so charitably and in a way that preserves both unity and freedom of conscience. We hope to make a difference—for the Church and the country.
We need and want healing conversations that serve the Church We need pilgrim politics that bear witness to Christ and Kingdom to which we are headed. Join us!
