Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz is the scheduled speaker for a Champions of Religious Liberty conference March 28 at Camp Trinity, the Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean Mountain. Seltz was the Lutheran Hour speaker from 2011 until 2017, when he became the first executive director of the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty in Washington, D.C. Seltz said the Center exists to “serve all of our churches, schools and universities by ensuring that their voices continue to be heard, serving the cause of religious liberty for all of our people so that God’s Word will indeed not be bound, but go forth and bear much fruit.”
A gifted speaker, Seltz will present in the morning and afternoon, with a break for lunch served by Camp Trinity staff. Following the conference Pastor Seltz will lead a worship service. Guests who want to stay overnight at camp Friday or Saturday night in either cabins or the RV campground can make separate arrangements with the camp by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty is to “ignite and fuel a uniquely Lutheran response to increasing intrusions, limitations and challenges by the government in the life of the Church, while educating, encouraging and equipping LCMS members and organizations to take informed action in support of marriage, life and religious freedom.”
Although there is no charge for the conference, preregistration is required to enable organizers to plan for seating, lunch and conference materials. A free-will offering will help defray the costs of the conference. Details, including registration information, can be found at the website of Camp Trinity: lutherancamp.org.
