What is G92?
At G92 you will hear from prominent national leaders who will inspire attendees to think Biblically about immigration and equip a new generation to respond in a way that exalts Jesus and draws people to Him.  G92 refers to the 92 times the Hebrew word for stranger, ger, occurs in Scripture.  It refers to people who have come from another land and is often referenced in connection with how God’s people are to treat the “ger” in their midst.

Speakers
Invited speakers who come from across the political and evangelical spectrum include keynote speakers Richard Land of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and Jim Wallis, founder and President of Sojourners. We will also hear from Shane Claiborne, founder of The Simple Way, Carlos Campo, President of Regent University, Galen Carey, Vice President of Governmental Affairs at the National Association of Evangelicals, and many other religious leaders, writers, and academics.

Why?
The goal of this event is to promote a high-level conversation about immigration in a way that honors the example of Jesus Christ and the written Word of God. Keeping Jesus and Scripture at the center of this discussion can transcend partisan and media sound-bites and model a high level of civility as attendees think carefully about immigration.
