Featuring the Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz
Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz is the scheduled speaker for the Champions of Religious Liberty conference at Camp Trinity, the Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean Mountain at a date to be determined. The conference was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The camp is working with the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty to organize the event.
Doors will open at 9 a.m., and the first presentation begins at 9:45. The conference will go to 2 p.m., after which all conferences attendees are invited to join in worship with Dr. Seltz leading.
Seltz was the Lutheran Hour speaker from 2011 until 2017, when he became the first executive director of the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty in Washington, D.C. Seltz said the Center exists to “serve all of our churches, schools and universities by ensuring that their voices continue to be heard, serving the cause of religious liberty for all of our people so that God’s Word will indeed not be bound, but go forth and bear much fruit.”
A gifted speaker, Seltz will present in the morning and afternoon, with a break for lunch served by Camp Trinity staff. Following the conference Pastor Seltz will lead a worship service. Guests who want to stay overnight at camp Friday or Saturday night in either cabins or the RV campground can make separate arrangements with the camp by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty works to address "increasing intrusions, limitations and challenges by the government in the life of the Church, while educating, encouraging and equipping (Christians) and organizations to take informed action in support of marriage, life and religious freedom."
In the midst of the threats and challenges that are increasing in the growing secularization of the American context it’s time for Christians to engage the culture for the sake of the mission of the Church. The Bible calls us to “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to give to God what is God’s” and to “submit to the authorities.” We need to know why and how, especially in a context that calls us “citizens” and not “subjects.” It’s time to exercise our temporal liberties in service to God’s eternal liberty, the Gospel of Jesus so that all might hear and believe.
Although there is no charge to attend the conference, attendees are asked to register so that event organizers can plan for seating, conference materials and food for lunch. Camp Trinity is seeking sponsors to help offset the cost of putting on the event.
