LA 2014 embraces a community engaged. As a CCCU community we will come together to engage in conversation, to express our unity in Christ, to encourage one another, and to be strengthened for Kingdom service. Intentional movement forward requires purposeful reflection on the past and collaborative engagement with the future. During this important time of transition for the CCCU, as well as the larger higher education community, Engaged Community is the opportune time to gather together to share perspectives, collaborate on solutions, and build relationships.
An impressive array of confirmed speakers will challenge us on the most pressing issues of the day. Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Leadership Conference, and Erwin Raphael McManus, lead pastor of Mosaic Church, will address issues of racial and ethnic diversity within the body of Christ. David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group, has overseen multiple research studies on Americans’ views of faith, spirituality, political attitudes, and cultural dynamics, and as author of unChristian (2007) and You Lost Me (2011), is uniquely qualified to speak on the perspectives of millennials on Christianity, church, and culture. Gabe Lyons, the founder of Q ideas, will lead us in an abbreviated version of a Q Conference with an additional line up of speakers on issues that impact our students and college campuses.
As we come together as members of Christian institutions across the country and the world, David Warren, president of NAICU, and Andrew Benton, president and chief executive officer of Pepperdine University, will share their insights on the "Biggest Game Changers in Higher Education."
In addition to challenging us, Engaged Community will also leave us renewed. With her inspiring message on Arts & Christian stewardship, opening speaker Roberta Ahmanson will remind us of the healing, connecting, community building power of the arts. Nancy Ortberg will present on spiritual life within the college community. Peer groups will come together in a rich afternoon of fellowship, learning and educational sessions. Finally, as the concluding speaker, Makoto Fujimura, a world renowned artist known for his integration of art and biblical truth, will speak on forgiveness and reconciliation.
Come. Engage. Renew.
