Over 80 ministers and artists will gather on July 20-22 for the 11th annual Legacy Conference in Chicago, among whom are Andy Mineo, KB, Jackie Hill Perry, Sho Baraka, Derek Minor, Shai Linne, Natalie Lauren and Dee-1.
This year’s conference theme will be the first of a four-year series for Legacy CHI: Devoted. The series will begin with Devoted to Doctrine.
“In order to walk worthy of the gospel as a disciple of Christ and make disciples for Christ, devotion is essential,” The Legacy director Brian Dye said. “Devotion to doctrine is essential because we cannot know God without God’s Word.”
The next three years, the conference themes will be Devoted to Fellowship, Devoted to the Gospel and Devoted to Prayer.
Other ministers who will teach at Legacy CHI 2017 include Charlie Dates, Colin Smith, The Ambassador, Blair Linne, BJ and Vanja Thompson, Rich and Anna Perez, Dhati Lewis, Jemar Tisby, Michelle Higgins, Joseph Solomon and Jimmy Needham.
