The Christian Conscience

A Higher Things¬ģ Confirmation Retreat

What is the conscience? How does the devil work in our conscience? And, how does the Holy Spirit work to train and comfort the conscience? Join us in Black Hawk where we will explore the Biblical teaching of the conscience, what affects it, what hurts it, and how the Lord Jesus intends to give us a clean, clear, good and joyful conscience through the Gospel. 

Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller is a pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in Aurora, CO. He is the co-host of Table Talk Radio, teacher of the Bible study Grappling with the Text, and the author of Has American Christianity Failed? (CPH, 2016).
