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.

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.
