Historic Gathering of Young Evangelists Set For Wheaton College
Two-day Conference — Feb. 20-21 — to Feature Will Graham, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Jon Bloom and More Than 20 Influential Evangelists
WHEATON, Ill. — Evangelists from around the world will gather Feb. 20-21 in Chicago for the Wheaton Evangelism Conference, an event aimed at encouraging and equipping a new generation of evangelists to lead revival.
The conference will be held in the Barrows Auditorium in the Billy Graham Center on the campus of Wheaton College in suburban Chicago and will feature the popular TED-style presentations.
Speakers include Will Graham, vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association; Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest US Protestant denomination with more than 16 million adherents in the US; Jon Bloom, president of Desiring God, the ministry of Dr. John Piper; Jefferson Bethke, spoken word artist whose video “Why I hate religion but love Jesus” has more than 27 million views on YouTube; Tommy Tenney, author of God Chasers which has sold millions of copies, and numerous others.
“Nearly ten years ago, God placed on my heart a desire to hold a conference for young evangelists in Chicago — much like what Billy Graham did with the historic Amsterdam 2000 event,” said Matt Brown, founder of Think Eternity, author of the upcoming book Awakening and organizer of the Wheaton Evangelism Conference. “We’re going to have leading young evangelists from around the world who will teach us, encourage us and dream with us about what God can do if we sowed our entire lives into the gospel.”
People will be able to join and watch live online from anywhere in the world via the live stream. Be sure to tell your friends to join us online from anywhere.
