You can find more information about the 2016 conference here, and registration here.

The CBMW conference will feature short talks from a litany of complementarian leaders, including John Piper, Kevin DeYoung, R. Albert Mohler Jr., Owen Strachan, Trillia Newbell, Alistair Begg, and others.

This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.
Male & Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage can be purchased online at Christian Book, Christian Focus, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
