The conference costs $45 to attend; the registration fee includes lunch.
The Art of Christian Leadership conference will explore what it takes for leaders to have faithful influence in a secular age.
The event is for leaders in any arena, including business, community organizations, education, ministry and politics.
The conference begins at noon with lunch and a keynote presentation by Andy Root, a professor at Luther Seminary in Minnesota and a leading thinker on Christian influence in a secular age.
Root will explore a historical perspective on the separation of sacred and secular as well as the increasing convergence — and confusion — of sacred and secular in today’s culture.
He will offer a way forward for Christian leaders who seek to be a faithful influence in sacred and secular contexts.
The keynote will be followed by three workshop sessions during which participants can choose among topics such as a Christian posture on power; cross-cultural bridge-building; cultural and emotional intelligence; innovative and missional leadership; and vulnerability, grit and vision in leadership.
The Art of Christian Leadership conference is being hosted by Northwestern’s campus ministry division.
