Every fall, Central Seminary conducts its annual Fall Conference. This one-day conference is designed to edify and equip believers in the areas of ministry and Christian life. Alumni, pastors, and friends from across the nation and around the world attend. Normally, this conference occurs on the first Tuesday in October.

2020 Conference – Gospel-Based Reconciliation

Racial and ethnic issues are at the forefront of many contemporary discussions. Tensions are perhaps as high as they were in the first century. How should the church navigate these issues? How does the message of the gospel overcome tension and division?

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 6, as Dr. Victor Clay, pastor of Dynamic Life Baptist Church in Kansas City and executive director of the Baptist Fellowship Association, preaches on this important issue. Dr. Clay is a frequent lecturer on this topic and has traveled and preached in many churches and conferences.
