Perkins Fall Convocation (Fall Convo) is an annual event sponsored by Perkins School of Theology, which offers lectures and workshops to practicing church professionals and the general public. This year's Fall Convo, "Mission Quest: Finding Your Place in God's World," is set for Monday-Tuesday, Nov. 11-12, 2019. This exciting event will feature three distinguished speakers whose amazing journeys—punctuated by their unique experiences of faith and courage—have ultimately led to works of hope and compassion both abroad and in the North Texas Community. Join Perkins faculty and leading church experts for workshops, dialogue, and worship focusing on mission in today's church.
