How can our churches bring the Old Testament words of Micah 6:8 to life for a new generation?

The Micah 6:8 Conference is designed to equip attendees to take an innovative approach to ministry in order to meet the challenges of this present age. We will have over 20 workshops on issues ranging from mental health and the church, christian advocacy as a tool for ministry, improving your church's outreach through community ministry and much more. 

The Micah 6:8 Conference is hosted by the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission, a ministry of Texas Baptists (BGCT), committed to helping churches apply biblical principles to community ministry, advocacy, and culture.

Do you feel equipped to serve those struggling with mental illness? You and your faith community can make a difference.

In this workshop, Dr. Stanford will outline the 4Rs and provide participants with practical tools to engage and serve those struggling with mental illness in your community.

This 3.5-hour workshop will equip you with practical tools to assist you in moving your ministry from relief to development. You will leave with a biblical framework as a guide.
