St. Louis L'Abri Conference:

For the past 20 years the Rochester L'Abri has hosted an annual L'Abri Conference in Rochester, Minnesota every February. Given the popularity of these Conferences, we decided to bring the best of this Conference to the St. Louis area. We now host an annual St. Louis Conference every fall that is a shorter version of the Rochester Conference. It has the same theme and plenary speakers but takes place over just one Saturday. This year will be our seventh St. Louis Conference. We do hope this will continue to be a helpful service to our many friends in this region.
