Video Storytelling Dives Deeper into the Value of Faith and Research

A team of Missouri Baptist University student videographers set out across campus to capture the stories of faculty members who are closely connected to the university’s annual Faith and Research Conference, delving into questions about the overall purpose of the conference, different styles of research presentations we can expect at the conference, and the overall importance of this year’s theme, “Mental Health and the Wholeness of Creation.”

Communications students conduct interviews of faculty members in preparation for this week’s Faith and Research Conference, which runs Thursday, April 7, and Friday, April 8, in the Pitch Room of the Learning Center and the Performance Hall.

MBU’s Fourth Annual Faith and Research Conference Reaching New Heights

As this year’s theme focuses on, “Mental Health and the Wholeness of Creation,” the docket of presenters for this year’s Faith and Research Conference has more than doubled in size and scope, with twice as many speakers from MBU, across the nation and around the world presenting their research over the course of two days this week, Thursday, April 7, and Friday, April 8, in the Learning Center.

Dr. Keith Beutler, pictured here presenting the keynote address during last year’s Faith and Research Conference, will again be speaking this year during the Published Authors Roundtable Discussion. While this year’s conference will have live sessions throughout two days in the Pitch Room of the Jung-Kellogg Learning Center as well as the Performance Hall in the Dale Williams Fine Arts Center, technology will again be the order of the day as presenters and attendees will be able to connect via Zoom to any and all presentations throughout the two days of the conference.      Photo by C.
