Thirteenth Annual Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics

Important Announcement on Virtual Conference for the Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics

The Steering Committee for the Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics has decided to turn this year’s conference meeting from in-person to virtual like many other meetings are doing.  The uncertain quarantine requirements due to COVID-19, especially relative to the northeastern states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, make it difficult to predict what attenders might have to endure.  Consequently, we will be posting further instructions in the days ahead for how we plan to proceed.  For anyone who paid to register for the conference, the registration fees will be refunded.  No registration costs of any kind will be imposed for this year.  Please pray for us as we finalize our plans.

                                                                                                                        Dr. Mike Stallard
