The event gave students four days of focused, biblical teaching, encouraged a deepened relationship with Christ and community, and mobilized them for continued influence. For the last ten summers, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College have hosted the D3 Youth Conference as a major event for students in grades 6-12.
“D3 is a great event for students, and this year’s conference, in the midst of a pandemic, may have been even more important for young people,” said President R. Albert Mohler Jr. “I was honored once again to speak to them, to teach from God’s Word, and to do a special ‘Ask Anything’ event with the students. They asked some of the best questions I have ever been asked. I am a big believer in Christian young people and in this conference.”
