Convening world-class speakers & diverse perspectives

Each year through events large and small, we convene over 3,000 students, faculty, scholars, and local church members to engage and be challenged by wide-ranging ideas and perspectives. At each event, we foster ongoing conversations and long-term relationships where integrating faith and knowledge can best be practiced.
