Christian Hope & Disappointment on the Academic Journey

At West Coast Faculty Conference this year, we will explore Christian hope and disappointment in our academic lives. We will study God's word for insight and experience connection, encouragement, and hope among believers and partners in the academy.

Here is a glimpse of what we have in mind:

  • Together, we will worship and be guided in various practices of prayer
  • Sign up for an individual meeting with a spiritual director
  • At any time, take time and space to be alone with God on Westmont’s beautiful Santa Barbara campus
  • Commune together with old and new friends, our families, and colleagues around meal tables, art stations, the Westmont College swimming pool, and the beautiful Santa Barbara beaches

The West Coast Faculty Conference 2020 will be held Monday, July 27- Friday, July 31 on the tranquil campus of Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.

Welcoming Faculty, Families, Singles and Couples

Faculty of all ages and life stages are invited to join us for what promises to be an encouraging and thought-provoking week! As a “family friendly” conference, our content is designed to connect with faculty, spouses, singles, and couples. Spouses and “plus one’s” are invited to attend all programming and Christ-centered childcare/children's programming will be provided during the morning and evening sessions. It is our prayer that everyone will leave the week refreshed and empowered by the Holy Spirit, and ready to faithfully navigate a new academic year!
