Announcing the 2014 SoCal Forum

Friends! This is one of many BIG announcements to come in 2014!!

I’m excited to announce the 2014 Faith ON Campus SoCal Forum, happening May 6th & 7th on the campus of Pepperdine University, and featuring special guests David Kinnaman and Cheryl Crawford.

More information will appear here later this month, when registration opens, but I wanted to get these dates in front of you as you are finalizing all of your spring plans.

Much like the Fall Forum that took place in Nashville, this event will serve as a two-day conversation around the unique challenges and opportunities we face in our work leading, serving, and mentoring today’s college students. Our conversations will tap into the rich research that David Kinnaman facilitates as the President of the BARNA Group, as well as the 30 plus years of experience and research Cheryl Crawford has compiled working with youth and teaching at Azusa Pacific University.

This two-day event will be a great blend of meaty content, rich conversation, and much-needed room to breathe and reflect as you finish up your year of ministry with students. And I can’t personally think of a better place to do this then on the sun soaked hills of Malibu, California, overlooking the panorama of the Pacific Ocean, on the campus of Pepperdine University — YES! that image above is where we will be.

SO — I hope you’ll mark these dates on your calendar and begin to make plans to join us for this significant time.
