Pauline Perspectives of Leadership
We explore, engage and extend the field of knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon of leadership as found within the contexts of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. We encourage diverse research relating to leadership constructs as depicted in the Pauline Corpus. Though the theme is “Pauline Perspectives of Leadership,” we welcome presentations of any manuscripts from a biblical perspective. Select papers from the roundtable will be recommended for the Fall 2018 edition of the Journal of Biblical Perspectives in Leadership.

We Need More
We provide a venue where both scholars and practitioners can serve and learn from one another both critically and experientially by evaluating and developing research, investigating thematic concepts and framing ideas. This year’s theme is “We Need More” to represent the great need that exists in our world for servant leaders as we continue the call for all aspiring servants.
The Future of Exploring the Subject of What’s Next?
We offer a venue to catalyze critical thinking and collaboration among future studies scholars and foresight practitioners focused on emerging technologies that have the power to transform society. This years’ theme is “The Future of Exploring the Subject of What’s Next?” From artificial intelligence, smart cars and alternative food sources to anticipated shifts in the church and workplace, we’ll explore what the future is likely to look like over the coming decades and how these technologies will potentially change our lives.
