Faith Lutheran Church - Plano to present 2019 North Texas Free Conference

Faith Lutheran Church will host the 2019 North Texas Free Conference on Saturday, January 26 at the church's Plano, Texas campus. The conference - themed “Creation”- will feature guest speaker Dr. Joel Heck from Concordia University in Austin, Texas.

“In the beginning, God created - out of nothing - everything that exists in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. Nothing exists apart from God’s creation. Every person and all living creatures receive their life from God and depend on His care. God created by His Word. He spoke creation into existence, forming and filling it in six days," said Faith Lutheran Church senior pastor Rev. James Woelmer. "There are  a lot of competing accounts of how the world came into existence, such as, pantheism, atheistic evolution and theistic evolution. But all of these theories lead to unbiblical conclusions and they deny the truth in Scripture."

Dr. Joel Heck serves Concordia University Texas, Austin, Texas, as Professor of Theology after nine years at Concordia as Vice President of Academic Services. Previously he served as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church, Valley Park, Missouri and Professor of Religion at Concordia University Wisconsin. He holds the Th.D. in  Exegetical Theology from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and he teaches various religion courses at Concordia University Texas, including Old Testament, New Testament, Reformation and C. S. Lewis, including a course entitled “Narnia meets Middle Earth.” He is the author or editor of fourteen books, most recently "From Atheism to Christianity: The Story of C. S. Lewis."

The conference begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 26 and will conclude following a mid-day meal. Faith Lutheran Church is located at 1701 E. Park Blvd. in Plano, Texas

The conference is free, but free will offerings will be accepted to offset conference expenses.  Registration is encouraged. For complete conference schedule, additional information or to register, call 972.423.7447 or visit
