Due to unforeseen circumstances, Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle is unable to speak as originally planned at this event. Nonetheless, the show will go on! We are pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Amos Yong, Professor of Theology and Mission and Director of the Center for Missiological Research at Fuller Theological Seminary will preach and present two keynote plenaries.
So come hear and engage with these three outstanding speakers – Anne Lamott, N.T. Wright, and Amos Yong. Additional plenaries and a workshop will focus on creative communication as it applies to preaching, writing, storytelling and sharing the gospel in this age of soundbites.

Reserve my spot now!

Registration is now closed for the free lecture only by Anne Lamott. A limited number of seats in the front, reserved section of McFarlin Auditorium are available with the purchase of a full convocation registration, so register NOW before they are all gone.  

Registration for the free lecture will close when all available seats have been claimed.
