Call for Papers

Innovation is the development of a product, service, idea, or process that ultimately yields value or utility. The Leading Transformative Innovation Roundtable is a gathering of intellectually curious people who will explore and dialogue about ideas related to the social, scientific, environmental, economic and cultural challenges the world faces today. The Transformative Innovation Roundtable is a multi-disciplinary community of remarkable experts and inquisitive amateurs that welcomes all with open minds and committed hearts. Presentations will be highly interactive, featuring engaging papers, concepts, and book reviews by exceptional thinkers, entrepreneurs, activists and scholars at the intersection of innovation and leadership — all from an intentionally biblical perspective. The singular goal is to inform and energize the conversation among Christians who use the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, organizations, and ultimately, the world.
