Panelists

We are excited to share our Panelist lineup for BiB 2022! Look below panel descriptions for photos and bios!

In line with our conference theme of "Our Strength in Christ's Surrender," our panels will be discussing the following topics:

Surrender in Relationships

It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of career, grades, or just trying to get at least seven hours of sleep. It can be easy to put people who matter first on the backburner, and it can be difficult to slow down and focus on things that are most important like the people surrounding us who we can have a kingdom impact on. The relationships panel will focus on how we can surrender our relationships to God in the way we interact with people. Our panelists will explore both personal and professional relationships, so that you can best thrive in your relationships.

Surrender in Money

We are well-versed in helping businesses make and spend money. But as Christians, we are often conflicted and confused about how to steward our own money. Our panelists will share their personal stories of how God has called them to surrender their finances, discuss what it means to trust in God's provision and live generously, and talk about what Christians often get wrong about the Biblical view of money.

Surrender in Career

"I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:5). The Surrendering Career Panel will discuss how to keep Christ first while navigating the often secular business environment. Our panelists will share the successes and failures in their career while keeping Christ present at work.

Surrender in Time

We often are tempted to be mastered by our time, rather than being a good steward of it. Join us and the team at Praxis Labs, a group fostering redemptive entrepreneurship, as we walk through establishing rhythms of work and rest, and creating a Rule for Life.
