2021 Theology Conference
The Promise of Life
God’s Plan for His People in the Covenant of Works
Join us October 8–9, 2021 at Providence OPC in Pflugerville, Texas for our annual theology conference.
After a year off, we cannot wait to get back together. We will explore God’s purpose for his people in the covenant of works and how Christ now secures that blessed future in our place.
This year, we will consider, “The Covenantal Tale of Creation, Christ, and Consummation: The Life and Work of M. G. Kline.” This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Meredith G. Kline. We will take the opportunity to consider his unique contributions by exploring several covenantal and eschatological themes he identified throughout the Old and New Testaments.
While we encourage you to attend in-person as it is a much richer experience and provides deeper connections with our speakers and other attendees, we realize not everyone will be able to make the trip. This year we are going beyond a simple livestream with an immersive online event experience.
