This year's event will focus on "The Good Earth: Creation and Ministry in an Ecological Age." In addition to keynote presentations from Drs. Wirzba and Bahnson, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops and conversations with community leaders on themes relevant to sustainability and stewardship of the earth. There will be a Farm to Table Banquet and optional field trips to sites related to the conference's theme.

Free Public Lecture During the Conference

On Monday, June 8, 2015, at 4:30 p.m., the keynote speakers will present the J. Hubert Henderson Lecture on Church and Ministry entitled,"From Nature to Creation: What Difference Does it Make?" In this conversation Bahnson and Wirzba explore how the way we treat the natural world has everything to do with how we think about it. Too often we take the world for granted. Discovering the world as God's creation opens the possibility for a more beautiful, healthy, and just life.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Registration for the lecture only is greatly appreciated. Those attending the Conference do not need to register separately for the lecture.
