What to Expect

Here We Still Stand is an invitation to celebrate the gospel truths reclaimed in the Reformation and a call to incite a modern Reformation under the banner of the finished work of Christ. It is a three day event packed with teaching, music, food and fellowship all focused on the radical message of God's grace toward sinners. Come and join this assembly of sinner/saints standing in the freedom of the gospel.

The conference is held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina in San Diego, California. All conference activities, meals, and hotel accommodations are in this one location. So get ready to eat, sing, learn and fellowship!  



Reformational Community

At Here We Still Stand you will find a community of people from all over the world who have been freed by the message of the gospel. Stories are shared. New friendships are formed and old friendships strengthened. It is an ever-growing family standing on the freedom that is rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ and refusing to move from it. Here We Still Stand... Together.


Here We Still Stand is filled with exhibitors who share common convictions. You’ll find books, podcasts, mercy ministries, Bible study and church helps, along with many other gospel centered resources. All exhibitors are carefully selected to reflect the values of HWSS.
