Thanks! I ended up figuring it out through much trial and error and banging my head against the keyboard. Surprised it worked haha.
I also added a way to print the date in a more easily readable format. In case anyone else needs the code:
$args = array(
‘post_type’ => ‘events’,
‘posts_per_page’ => -1,
‘meta_key’ => ‘speaking_event_date’,
‘orderby’ => ‘meta_value_num’,
‘order’ => ‘ASC’
$wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );
while( $wp_query->have_posts() )
$date = date_create(”.get_field(‘speaking_event_date’).”);
//echo get_post_meta($post->ID,’speaking_event_date’,true) . ‘<br />’;
echo ‘<li>’ . get_the_title() . ‘ – ‘ . date_format($date,’d F Y’) . ‘</li>’;
echo ‘<p>’ . get_the_content() . ‘</p>’;
