Reformation Conference 2017

Calvin in Geneva (1594).

Covenant Presbyterian Church presents a conference on the French Reformation entitled: “A Small Faithful Church in a Big Hostile World.”

In honor of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we would like to tell an unappreciated part of this story: the story of the Huguenot and the French Reformation. We want not only to hear their story, but to derive lessons for faithful Christian living in this present hostile world.

Four lectures will be given by renowned Reformation history scholars Bill Edgar (Westminster Theological Seminary) and Glenn Sunshine (Central Connecticut State University).
