BREAKOUT SESSIONS:

 

Title: EFFECTIVELY ENGAGING THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION

Speakers: Teddy James, Managing Editor, engagemagazine.net; Kendra White, Writer, engagemagazine.net

Synopsis: Is the Millennial generation really as incomprehensible as we have been led to believe? Is that generation truly as liberal, self-centered, and lost as reports make out? This session is led by a group of Millennials reaching their generation with a clear goal, to challenge the worldview that culture has pushed on them and build one based on the foundation of Scripture. This team aims to help you reach this generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We will not focus on product, but on process. We will show that the methods must change, but the message must not. 

 

Title: Middle East Reality Check: How does the U.S. deal with Iran? Today’s Religious Rulers and Tomorrow’s Nuclear Power

Speakers: TBD

Synopsis: Preventing ISIS from constructing a caliphate is a goal of U.S. foreign policy.  Unfortunately, at the same time, the Obama Administration increasingly is engaging in appeasement of a caliphate that already exists, the Islamic Republic of Iran. Since the negotiation of an ill-conceived nuclear agreement that has freed Iran from effective sanctions, Iran has increased its support of terrorism, continues to destabilize multiple Gulf states, regularly threatens to destroy Israel and has declared America as its number one enemy. In spite of this, the U.S. is pursuing policies which appear to concede that Iran will dominate the Middle East.

Can Obama’s weak policies toward Iran be revised by a new president? Is it realistic and probable to expect that the nuclear deal will be disavowed by a new administration? Can an effective sanctions regime be reconstructed?

 

Title: A NEW WAY TO MOBILIZE CHRISTIAN NON-VOTERS

Speakers: George Barna, Executive Director, American Culture and Faith Institute; Bill Dallas, CEO, United in Purpose; Jay Bartels, CTO, United in Purpose

Synopsis: Mobilizing new conservative and Christian voters in key battleground states can decide election outcomes. But how do you find these “needles in the haystack” and get them to the polls? UiP’s innovative, proven strategy combines research, partnerships, and targeted messaging to identify Christian non-voters in key states, reach them, and motivate them to vote.

 

Title: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF AMERICA’S ECONOMIC WOES

Speakers: Arthur D. Ally, President, The Timothy Plan

Synopsis: This presentation will clearly explain America’s economic condition and whether or not there is any real hope for a solution.  We will examine the potential coming economic earthquake, external threats to our markets from our myriad of world-wide enemies, the problem of the Fed, the durability of the dollar, the real risk of hyper-inflation, crony capitalism between the Fed and Wall Street, the smoke and mirrors behind corporate financial engineering, etc.  Although there are no easy answers, there are some possible solutions and possible ways to safeguard your nest-egg.

 

Title: INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM OR IDEOLOGICAL FASCISM?

Speakers: Matt Walsh, blogger and cultural commentator, regular contributor to TheBlaze; Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, 2016 recipient of the Jeane Kirkpatrick Award for Academic Freedom, author of “This is Not a Daycare, It’s a University” and “Why I am a ‘Liberal’ and Other Conservative Ideas”

Synopsis: The American university is imploding with self-refuting duplicity. In our culture, safe zones are anything but safe and people are bullied by those decrying bulling. The banner of tolerance has become a dark flag of tyranny almost overnight. Join Matt Walsh and Everett Piper—two leading voices fighting for intellectual freedom—in a discussion on ideological fascism, the consequences of ideas, and the solution found in the pursuit of Truth.

 

Title: HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST THE ATTACKS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Speakers: Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO & Chief Counsel, First Liberty Institute; Ken Klukowski, Senior Counsel, Director of Strategic Affairs, First Liberty Institute; Michael Berry, Senior Counsel, Director of Military Affairs, First Liberty Institute; Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel, First Liberty Institute

Synopsis: Welcome to the new America—where powerful institutions want to restrict or eliminate the religious freedom of: Your church.  Your ministry or ministries you love. Your family. Your schools. Your business. Your job and career. Your community.  Your government. The military that protects you. Even sacred monuments and memorials you cherish. Come learn from top-ranked lawyers and real-life victims about successful, proven ways to avoid, or defeat, those who would attack your rights . . . and how to restore religious freedom for all Americans.

 

Title: HOW TO  BE A CHRISTIAN STATESMAN-CITIZEN
