Xenos Summer Institute | July 13-15, 2022

The 2022 Xenos Summer Institute is July 13th through the 15th. This year the theme is Last = First. Jesus made the statement, "many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first" (Matthew 19:30). Christ's followers are called to lose their lives for Him (Mark 8:35); His leaders are to be "least" (Luke 9:48).  How shall we understand these statements? How should we apply them, especially in such a time of upheaval?  This conference will answer these questions and more by cutting to the heart of Christian leadership and service.
