Christian Scholars' Conference 2011

About the CSC

The mission of the Christian Scholar's Conference is to create and nurture an intellectual and Christian community that joins individuals and institutions to stimulate networks of scholarly dialogue and collaboration.

The conference was created in 1981 under the direction of Dr. Thomas H. Olbricht, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Pepperdine University, and has since been hosted by several universities associated with Churches of Christ. The conference calls together Christian scholars from a wide variety of disciplines in the liberal arts and sciences to develop their own academic research and to reflect on the integration of scholarship and faith.

In service to its mission to nurture and strengthen a Christian community of individuals and institutions, the Christian Scholars' Conference has adopted a model wherein the conference is typically hosted at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, but travels every third year and is hosted by a fellow institution.
