PANEL: Saving Souls in Sin City: The Secret Life of Ministry in the Party City

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” is the catchphrase description of a city that is home to a variety of lifestyles unlike most other places in the United States. It’s not just the notorious ones, such as the gambling tourists. There are also large immigrant populations, who flock to the city for cheap living and good-paying jobs, for example. This panel will explore the ways that religious communities minister to the city’s diverse population, either within their houses of worship, or on the Strip itself.
