Out of the Overflow of the Heart.... (Mt. 12:35b)

In a world of great need, join us as we consider service in the midst of lives that are pulled and stretched in competing directions. What overflows the vessel of our heart? Amidst the cracks and crevices, how do we actively and faithfully respond?

Keynote Speaker: Rodger Nishioka is an Associate Professor of Christian Education at Columbia Theological Seminary. Rodger offers encouragement and challenge as we traverse faith and service in our lives. He will speak to how we nurture the spirit, make meaning and find vocation amidst the cacophony of competing opportunities and values. Rodger has authored several books and articles including: Life in the Liquid church: ministry in a consumer culture and The Roots of Who We Are. He speaks on topics ranging from cultural identity, the post-denominational church to the Gospel in a culture of privilege.
