The Intersection of Faith and Work

As Christians in academia, we often face unique challenges when it comes to the intersection of our faith and our role in the university. At the InterVarsity Blue Ridge Faculty Conference you will:

  • hear from Christian scholars as they share about their experiences as Christians in academia
  • worship together and have opportunities for other spiritual formation
  • network with fellow Christ-followers in academia
  • step away from the busyness of campus life and enjoy time in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains for you and even your entire family

Conference Details

The conference will be on June 25 – 28, 2020 at Ridge Haven Conference and Retreat Center located outside of Asheville, North Carolina, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. We’ll again offer a day-ahead option on June 24. This is a great opportunity to enjoy additional unstructured time or an optional guided retreat before the conference officially begins. Please mark your calendars—we look forward to seeing you there!

To learn more about our guest speakers, Dr. Elaine Howard Ecklund and Dr. Denise Daniels, please see their bios on the Program page.
