May 21-23, 2021

 

Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas

We are created in the image of God. But we have so many questions about how to live like it.

Who am I? What do I base my identity on? Am I worth loving? Do I love the right things?

Amid such questions, everything about human identity seems up for grabs. We and our loved ones constantly have to grapple with our self-worth, our calling, causes, gender, race, and more.

But there’s a key to navigating all of it.

At Wilberforce Weekend 2021, delve into the meaning of the Imago Dei—the identity that can help you make sense of everything else. Be equipped to strengthen your family and your church. And leave with a renewed vision for God’s calling for you…and what He is doing to restore the world.

Online Format Available

We know we can’t fit everyone we’d like in one resort. Nor can we fit every speaker we’d like into one weekend. That’s why we are capturing and re-mastering this in-person experience and making it available for you to watch (and re-watch!) at your leisure… from the comfort of your home! The Wilberforce Weekend Online pass provides access to all recorded main stage presentations and panelist discussions from over 20 speakers. Also, we will be releasing several bonus sessions from speakers who were not in-person at Wilberforce Weekend!

*This is not a live-streamed event*.
