Career & Calling Week (with Steve Garber) | March 19-21

Next week University Ministries (in partnership with Career Services and the Sophomore Transition Center) will be hosting our first annual Career & Calling week — featuring Dr. Steve Garber.

This week is designed to help our campus community think through the unique ways that God has designed us, the ways that He might want to use us in the world — both now and after we leave here, as well as how our time together (on campus) might best be used as we begin to live into this new reality.

Here is the schedule for this 3-day event:

Monday, March 19th

10 a.m. | Neely — Too Much Is Not Enough—On Learning and Living in a Mediated World (U2,  “Numb”)

3 p.m. | Beaman A&B — What If Nothing Can Save Our Souls? On Why Karma is Not Enough (Civil Wars, “Barton Hollow”)

Tuesday, March 20th

3:30 p.m. | Beaman A&B — Liquor and Blood, Longing and Love—The Hardest Hope in the Whole World (Mat Kearney, “Chasing the Light”)

Wednesday, March 21st

10 a.m. | Neely — Where Were You? The Question of Everyone’s Life (Fray, “You Found Me” )

More about Steve:

Steven has a classroom among many people in many places. As the Director of the Washington Institute, the heart of his own calling is that people understand the integral character of faith, vocation, and culture. Author of The Fabric of Faithfulness: Weaving Together Belief and Behavior (Second Ed., 2007), he writes frequently for Comment and Critique, and in addition was a contributor to the volumes Faith Goes to Work: Reflections From the Marketplace, and Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalogue, as well as to the Mars Hill Audio journal, “Tacit Knowing, Truthful Knowing: The Life and Work of Michael Polanyi.” For many years he taught on Capitol Hill in the American Studies Program, and then became the Scholar-in-Residence for the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. He serves as a board member for Ransom Fellowship, the Blood:Water Mission, A Rocha, and the Telos Project, and as a consultant for the Wedgwood Circle, the Murdock Trust, the Demdaco Corporation and the Mars Corporation. A native of the great valleys of Colorado and California, he is married to Meg and is the father of five children whose own callings have them scattered around the world.

Please make plans to join us for this meaningful time on our campus!
