Pepperdine to Host 80th Annual Harbor: The Pepperdine Bible Lectures

Logo that reads God Loves Forever

From Tuesday, May 2, through Friday, May 5, Pepperdine’s Office of Church Relations will host its annual multi-day conference, Harbor: The Pepperdine Bible Lectures, on the Malibu campus. This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Harbor conference, which strives to bring together Christians from across the nation and around the world for a time of education, fellowship, worship, and rejuvenation.

Chancellor Sara Young Jackson (’74), University chaplain Sara Barton, and a number of other Pepperdine faculty and staff members will join more than 100 additional speakers from universities and churches across the country to address the 2023 theme of “God Loves Forever” in a variety of lectures and workshops. 

In addition to the Bible lectures, Harbor will feature entertainment, including stand-up comedy performances and a concert by Won by One, Pepperdine’s six-member a cappella singing group; opportunities for exercise such as CrossFit, tai chi, and a group run along the Pacific Coast Highway; and children’s programs for 3- to 11-year-olds. On-campus housing is available.
