The Seek Justice Conference, sponsored by Trevecca’s own J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice, is just a few days away. Set for May 16-17, the conference will examine the call of believers to seek justice in every area of their lives, work, worship and family.
During the one-and-a-half day conference, keynote speaker Jo Saxton will speak on biblical social justice. So just who is Jo Saxton? Let’s get to know her a little better.
