The 20/20 Collegiate Conference is fast approaching and we would like to invite you to be a part of this exciting conference at Southeastern Seminary. The theme for the 2010 20/20 Conference is A City Within A City: Church, Culture & Counter-Culture. We hope you would consider making the trip to Wake Forest for this important conference. You can register for this conference by clicking here. You will find all the information below.
Date: February 5-6, 2010 on the campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
Topic: A City Within A City: Church, Culture & Counter-Culture. God’s church always finds herself in the midst of a broader human culture. Though the church is a part of that culture, she also bears witness to a Reality greater than the culture. For this reason, we as believers have the great privilege and responsibility of finding ways—in our colleges, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities—to display the truth, goodness, and beauty of God and his gospel. Come and join us as we explore ways of bearing witness to God and his gospel in the midst of a skeptical, morally confused culture.
Plenary Session Speakers:
- Daniel Akin is president of Southeastern and a respected theologian, preacher and evangelical leader. He and his wife Charlotte have four sons, three daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren.

- Matt Chandler serves as Lead Pastor of The Village Church in Highland Village, TX. He describes his six-year tenure at The Village as a re-planting effort where he was involved in changing the theological and philosophical culture of the congregation. The church has witnessed a tremendous response growing from 160 people to over 6,000 including satellite campuses in Dallas and Denton. Alongside his current role as lead pastor, Matt is involved in church planting efforts both locally and internationally through The Village and various strategic partnerships. His greatest joy outside of Jesus is being married to Lauren and being a dad to their three children, Audrey, Reid and Norah.

He also speaks at numerous national youth conferences, camps, and retreats, as well as dozens of youth rallies and churches of different denominations. He speaks on various topics depending on his audience, including marriage, missions, music, dating, motivational talks for non-religious events, and discipleship. But above all, he is called to preach the gospel and call people to salvation in Christ. He and his wife Charie have two sons.
