Topical experts and practitioners will provide teaching, resources, and action-oriented next steps for our churches and for individuals to consider. Our conference speakers include: 

Rachael & Jacob Denhollander

Justin & Lindsey Holcomb

Boz Tchividjian

Michael Horton

& Mary DeMuth

The Valued Conference is being led by volunteers and is hosted by two local churches who simply seek to see themselves, along with others, better equipped and informed on the topic. We believe that the Word of God, in Christ Jesus and His Gospel, leads us to compassionately bring abounding love, hope, and comfort to survivors, and calls us to protect the vulnerable by seeking justice.
