Bottom-up Approaches to Global Poverty

Appropriate Technology, Social Entrepreneurship, and the Church

Second Annual Baylor Symposium on Faith and CultureThursday, October 23-Saturday, October 25, 2008. The way that Christians respond to those most in need is a sign of God's presence. But the mission of the church does not move in one direction-from West to East, first to third world, or affluence to poverty. Nor is it controlled from a central location or organization. Located in every province of every country, the church is situated to react to the needs of the poor in an especially powerful way-from the bottom up. For more information, see http://www.baylor.edu/ifl/poverty.

National Faculty Leadership Conference

June 27-29, 2008 National Faculty Leadership Conference, Washington, D.C.

A conference for university professors and graduate students exploring the theme: "The Heart of the University Program"

Outstanding plenary speakers include Dr. J. P. Moreland, Dr. Ken Elzinga, Dr. Marla Frederick-McGlathery, and Bible exposition by Dr. Richard Pratt. Special guest presenters include Dr. William Lane Craig and Dr. Patricia Raybon. Our conference will be enriched with worship through music, fine arts performances, and prayer for the academy. Calls for scholarly papers will be issued in 12 academic tracks to address the conference theme and how believers might courageously apply moral and biblical wisdom and perspectives to issues within their disciplines. A variety of seminars designed to equip university professors and future professors for spiritual, intellectual and moral leadership in the academy will be offered. Special pre-conference workshops are also being planned. Sponsored by FACULTY COMMONS The faculty ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ International. See https://www.intre.org/event/info.php?s=43 for more information.


Prayers for Charles and Pam Adams

Dr. Charles Adams is a friend and colleague for many readers of this newsletter and a regular attendee and presenter at the Christian Engineering Education Conference. He and his wife, Pam, both teach at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. This past weekend they were involved in a serious car accident. They were airlifted to a nearby hospital where they now lie in critical condition. They are in dire need of your prayers. Please lift them up to the Lord, along with the doctors providing care, and also their children and grandchildren. You can find more information on this care page: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/charliepamadams


CEEC2008 in Pittsburgh

The next Christian Engineering Education Conference will be June 25-27, 2008 at Geneva College (near Pittsburgh, the ASEE site that year). The conference will conclude around mid-day on Friday, giving attendees time to get to the National Faculty Leadership Conference if they plan to attend both events. Registration will begin next month.

We still need worship leaders/readers/accompanists, and more.  Please contact Steve VanderLeest, svleest@calvin.edu, and indicate how you could help.
