(OVIEDO, Fla.) — The Paideia Center for Theological Discipleship is pleased to announce the dates for its third annual Winter Conference. The conference will be hosted online during the evenings of January 25-28, 2021.
The theme of the conference will be “the Christian life.” Topics include the Psalms as a guide to the Christian life, death and the Christian life, Augustine on the Christian life, and public witness and the Christian life. Among others, the conference will feature Todd Billings, Michael Horton, Scott Swain, Carl Trueman, Han-luen Kantzer Komline, Liam Goligher, and Mark McDowell as presenters and panelists.
The online format of the conference will allow participants to engage with the content at their own pace. Plenary presentations, panels, and interviews will be provided during the conference and will remain available to participants for one month.
Dr. Michael Allen, Academic Dean at RTS Orlando, said, “The current year has brought new sorts of challenges: financial and medical, social and ecclesiastical. We think that wisdom is needed for the tasks at hand, and we believe that such wisdom is best gained from engaging the best of the Christian tradition in productive, civil conversation.”
The Winter Conference is a complement to the regional reading groups of the Paideia Center. In the fall, each group read and discussed Augustine’s Confessions. In the spring, the groups will read Calvin’s A Little Book on the Christian Life. Previous conferences focused on the Trinity (2019) and Christian soul care (2020).
Dr. Allen added, “The Paideia Center for Theological Discipleship continues to serve the wider church by helping equip men and women in cities around the world by providing spaces, groups, and resources to help foster study and conversation around great Christian truths and classic theological literature.”
