It’s time again for Northwest Nazarene University’s annual Wesley Center Conference! I’m especially enthusiastic about this year’s conference, which will be on Thursday, March 6. I believe it will be one of the most inspiring and innovative conferences we’ve had yet.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Wesley Talks: Ministry & Culture.” We’ll be using four of the popular TED Talks as a springboard for discussion in the context of Christian faith and our Wesleyan theological heritage. We’ll explore questions, such as “How does faith and culture interact?” and “What can we in the church learn from those within our culture?”
We’re expecting hundreds of pastors, laypersons, scholars, and students from all over the world who will be joining us on campus. In recent years, we’ve also hosted more than a thousand other people who have participated online via our free live conference webcast.
If you’re attending in person, we also hope you’ll stick around for the annual meeting of the Wesleyan Theological Society, which NNU is hosting on our campus March 7-8. The WTS conference theme is, “Atonement in the Wesleyan Tradition.” Wesleyan-Holiness scholars from around the globe will explore key themes of atonement, including keynote presentations by New Testament scholar Dr. Ben Witherington III of Asbury Theological Seminary and theologian and NNU alum Dr. Randy Maddox of Duke Divinity School.
