UGA Christian faculty schedules orientation
The University of Georgia's Christian Faculty Forum will host a Christian Student Survival Conference April 23-24 in room 203 of Caldwell Hall off Herty Drive.
The conference is aimed at high school juniors and seniors who are planning to go to college.
It is designed to prepare them for the intellectual challenges they will face and to demonstrate that a living relationship with Christ is an intellectually defensible and respectable commitment.
Speakers at the conference will be UGA faculty who are members of the Christian Faculty Forum, an interdenominational ministry comprising more than 70 UGA Christian professors.
Their presentations will address topics such as the historical evidence for Jesus and the Bible, evolution, naturalism and postmodernism. Small discussion groups are planned, to give students the opportunity to respond to the speakers.
Cost of the conference is $10. For more information, contact forum member David B. Mustard at (706) 548-9526, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The forum's Web site address is http://www.uga.edu/cff/.
