May 8, 2BC Worship Center, 6:00 pm

We are excited to host Amanda Tyler of the BJC, Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, on May 8th at 6pm! If the rise of Christian Nationalism is concerning to you, or if you want to learn more about the issue, we invite you to attend.

You might have heard the phrase “Christian Nationalism” in public discourse of late, but what does it mean? When does nationalism and the Christian faith become a toxic combination? How can our faith intersect politics in ways that are faithful and helpful?

Amanda Tyler from the Baptist Joint Committee will be delivering a keynote address on the topic of Christian Nationalism at Second Baptist Church Downtown (222 E. 8th St.). She is the executive director of BJC (Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty), leading the organization as it upholds the historic Baptist principle of religious liberty: defending the free exercise of religion and protecting against its establishment by government. She is the lead organizer of BJC’s Christians Against Christian Nationalism campaign and co-host of BJC’s Respecting Religion podcast.
Amanda’s constitutional law analysis and advocacy for faith freedom have been featured by major news outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and more. She was named one of “2022’s rising stars in religion” by the Religion News Service. Amanda has testified numerous times before Congress on matters concerning religious liberty and Christian nationalism, and is an expert in the field.
This is a free event and open to the public. We appreciate the @Great Rivers Fellowship for co-sponsoring this event. We hope you will bring your friends and join us for this important conversation. Childcare will be provided.
