Public Life Personal Faith

Public Life Personal Faith Scholarship Luncheon 

The Public Life Personal Faith series, inaugurated in 2010, is a fundraising and outreach event of Perkins School of Theology in service to the larger community. The lecture provides an opportunity for participants to engage scholars on topics related to why and how personal faith shapes public life. “We are called to know, love, and serve God and neighbor in our daily lives through sharing the Gospel of truth, mercy, justice, and love,” explains Dr. John Martin, Director of Development at Perkins. “Personal faith has practical consequences for the way we think, speak, make choices, and live our public lives.” This luncheon also serves as a major fundraiser for student scholarships.
