"It's not about the church meeting your needs; it's about joining the mission of God's people to meet the world's needs.”                                                                                       —Brian D. McLaren


February 24 & 25, 2018

Webster Groves Presbyterian Church, St. Louis, Missouri

Keynote Speaker: Brian D. McLaren

Theme: Moving your passion from your heart to the world

Faith isn’t just about showing up in the pews. How do we express our faith throughout our daily lives? Come and be spiritually fed as we explore ways of living out our faith 365 days a year and moving our passion from our hearts to the world.

About Faith365

Faith365 is a conference sponsored by Webster Groves Presbyterian Church with keynote speeches by Christian author and speaker Brian McLaren. This event seeks to help people in the St. Louis community live a more faithful life 365 days a year.

The 2018 conference theme—“Moving your passion from your heart to the world”— was inspired by John 5:1-17, and many of our panel questions will be based on the different movements of this story. Just as the man in need of healing has sat by the pool for 18 years, we know many people want to lead lives of greater faith and service but often hesitate. We hope that this weekend will ask, “Do you want to be made well?” and move attendees to their feet and into the world.   

The morning will begin with a keynote speech by Brian McLaren, author, speaker, activist, and public theologian. A former college English teacher and pastor, he is a passionate advocate for “a new kind of Christianity”—just, generous, and working with people of all faiths for the common good.

We'll then have a 90-minute moderated panel made up of five panelists who will be asked both scripted question and screened questions from the audience. Questions will encourage discussion between panelists and will focus on the personal stories of passion and calling that have shaped each panelist's life focus through vocation, avocation, and profession.

After lunch, panelists will offer 45-minute workshops (each presented twice) that explore and offer insight to the work of the presenter’s organization. The presenters will speak to the specific work of their passion with the hope of engaging the passions of conference participants and detailing the ways in which conference participants can be involved. Workshops are intended to address the specific work of the organization as well as the systemic issues that necessitate the organization’s work.

On Sunday, Brian McLaren will bring the sermon to our 10:30am worship service. Conference fees are for Saturday. There is no charge for Sunday morning.
