Saturday, October 25 2014 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church
43 Wentworth St, Charleston, SC 29401
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Price: $29 ($19 for students)

This was an Acts 29 Carolinas Network Regional Event focused on training and networking for planters and pastors in the Carolinas. All are welcome to come.

The great southern author Flannery O’Connor famously observed, “while the South is hardly Christ-centered, it is most certainly Christ-haunted.”  But what would happen to our “over-churched, under-gospeled” landscape if a new generation of men planted gospel-centered churches that thrive in our context?
