Conference Theme

We will gather in St. Louis this coming October, at the historic Union Station Hotel. Our theme will be: On Christian Higher Education: Leading and Teaching in the Academy. Christian Higher Ed is the water in which we all swim. Our members, other fellow professors, and doctoral students are all stakeholders in Christian Higher Education.

As Christian Educators, we are all uniquely positioned to influence our respective institutions in ways that give our students the best possible opportunity to learn and flourish, redemptively. Education is learning, after all. Author Ken Bain says the best teachers ask good questions. We think that’s right. So here’s some big questions that we need to stare down in Christian Higher Education.


We are excited to announce the speakers for the 2018 conference. 

  • David Dockery
  • Jim Wilhoit
  • Sarah Miglio
