Top and Brad Wilcox, professors at BYU and former mission presidents for the Church. Both are popular speakers, and both have authored books about the Savior.
The conference topic will be the Savior, His life, His mission, the Atonement and His influence in our lives today.
“Attending the BYU Easter Conference is an ideal way to prepare for and to celebrate the Easter season,” said Brent Nordgren, production supervisor for the BYU Religious Studies Center.”We invite you to bring your family, a date, a friend or your LDS ward.”
