A number of speakers are lined up for the seminar, which will be led by Royce Money, chancellor of ACU, and Randy Harris, a religion professor at the university.
A publicity statement about the seminar says: “Our country’s religious landscape is changing rapidly and many churches are in decline. Yet God’s desire for humankind remains constant. Congregations face the challenge of adapting to a new day while remaining faithful and fruitful. What can we learn from the past? What are some signs of vitality and flourishing in congregations today?”
