Welcome to the CHC Research Symposium
There has rarely been a more essential and timely need to examine the purpose and practice of Christian education around the world.
The inaugural CHC Research Symposium, Learning and Loves: Re-imagining Christian Education, featured well-known philosopher and author Dr James K.A. Smith, with a keynote session on Day One Higher Education: What’s Love Got To Do With It? Longings, Desires and Human Flourishings, based on his book Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview and Cultural Formation. This session was chaired by Ps Brian Mulheran, Dean of the CHC School of Ministries.
Dr Smith also gave a keynote address at the optional Millis Institute Launch Dinner, How (Not) To Be Secular: Cultural Engagement in a Pluralist Age.
Day Two saw the presentation of research papers broadly based on the themes of the Research Symposium. The event concluded with a closing keynote by the Executive Director of The Millis Institute, Dr Ryan Messmore.
