Stories that Challenge, Connect, and Heal

A Hybrid Conference

Registration Opens August 2021

After many months behind masks and closed doors, let’s emerge and engage! Join us for this annual event where clergy, laity and anyone with a passion for lifelong learning come together to explore relevant topics as they relate to church and community. This year’s Fall Convocation is built around the theme, “Stories that Challenge, Connect and Heal,” and will feature renowned speakers who will address each of those topics with engaging presentations. Plans at this time include in-person and virtual engagement. However, university health and safety protocols, based on recommendations from local health officials, may impact how registrants can participate in this event. Sign up for email updates on Fall Convocation event details!
