ABOUT THE 2019 CONFERENCE/ ENJOYING GOD THROUGH SCRIPTURE AND PRAYER
We believe Bible reading and prayer are essential to the Christian life. God has designed these habits for our joy and for a lifetime of growth in godliness. The focus of Home First Conference 2019 is to help families, churches, and leaders learn to read Scripture, pray more effectively, and lead others to do the same.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE /
Home First exists to equip families, churches, and leaders to shepherd those under their care with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Biblically, we believe discipleship begins in the home and is strengthened by the local church.
EVENT SPEAKER /
Don Whitney has been Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY since 2005.

He is the founder and president of The Center for Biblical Spirituality.
