In lieu of the Leader Board gathering normally held in early November, your 2018 membership secures you a seat at the special 30th Anniversary Gala for the Hendricks Center 2.0, where we will celebrate our legacy and unveil our vision for the future. This evening banquet will look back at the history of the Center and the numerous resources we’ve developed for leaders: Leader Board, LEAD, numerous conferences and retreats, spiritual formation, The Table Podcast, faith-and-work initiatives, and many others. We’ll also look at where the Center and Dallas Seminary stand in terms of today’s unique context—both the challenges we face and our opportunities for impact. Then we’ll do some dreaming and talk about strategy as the Center moves into its next season of exciting work. It will be a blockbuster event devoted to praising God for what He has done and prayerfully considering what He might choose to do through the Hendricks Center in the years ahead. Dr. Tim Keller will be our keynote speaker, and this event will be held at the Hilton Anatole from 7:00PM to 9:00PM on March 26th 2019.
