This year we decided to put on a conference with the purpose of providing hope and wisdom for people leaving Mormonism as they explore a new faith home in historic, biblical Christianity. The conference provided speakers, workshops, and individual interactions with others on a similar journey – all to help transitioning Mormons.
Our vision for this event came to life on September 7-8 at South Mountain Community Church in Draper, Utah. With 122 attenders, the Faith After Mormonism conference was a success. Many great connections were made and the weekend was encouraging and insightful.
We featured an excellent line-up of speakers, all former Mormons, including:
- Michael and Lynn Wilder, leaders of Ex-mormon Christians United for Jesus and authors of 7 Reasons We Left Mormonism and Unveiling Grace
- Earl Erskine, host of The Ex-Mormon Files
- James Wakefield, former professor of Biblical and Spiritual Theology at Salt Lake Theological Seminary and Lead Pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
- Ross Anderson, Executive Director of Utah Advance M
inistries, author of Jesus Without Joseph: Following Christ after Leaving Mormonism, and head of the Faith After MormonismYouTube channel.
The conference was such a success that many people would like to see it happen again next year. We are planning on making the Faith After Mormonism Conference an annual event to help those on the difficult journey out of Mormonism, as well as those helping others on that journey.
