EFCA Theology Conference 2017: Preconference

Greg Strand – November 21, 2016 Leave a comment

This year we have two sessions that make up our preconference sessions on February 1, held on the campus of Trinity International University. This will be both informative and helpful to you, both personally and in relation to your ministry.

On Wednesday morning, we will begin the Conference with a focus on “Pastoral Practices” with Dan Busby, president of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and author. Busby will address trust, accountability and integrity in our real-world situations. He will also share his “view from Washington” on current issues.

On Wednesday afternoon, we continue our preconference session under the theme of “Genesis and the Age of the Earth: Does the Bible speak definitively on the age of the universe?” This is a part of the Trinity Debate series. R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY, will argue the “yes” position while C. John Collins, Professor of Old Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, MO, will argue the “no” position.

The debate will be followed by focusing on the application of this discussion in the local church. This debate is co-sponsored by the Henry Center for Theological Understanding and the EFCA.

You can find information on the Conference here. Registration is now open, so please register today.

Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
