Christ Hold Fast is super excited to be part of the Here We Still Stand conference again in 2018! If you went to the event this year you already know how incredible it was. If you didn't, please consider coming in 2018. You will not regret it.

The conference will be held October 18-20 at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina in San Diego, California. The theme is 'The Theology of the Cross'

Tickets are available for a limited time at an early bird discount. The event sold out this year and is sure to do the same in 2018. Your ticket includes all plenary sessions. Choice of breakouts. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday. It's an incredible deal at $149!

Also, consider registering for the Podcast Pre-Conference and Lunch. Six different podcasts will be recording live on Thursday and you can sit in on as many as you'd like. It's only $30 and includes your lunch. It's a great opportunity to meet the hosts of some amazing podcasts and to fellowship with other conference attendees.
