Celebrating Our Story . . . Searching The Horizon

Overview: As we contemplate a season of ABHE leadership transition, we do well to remind ourselves that our collective identity can have meaning and our endeavors can matter only within the larger story of God’s redemptive work that stretches across the long arc of history. The original impetus for ABHE member institutions and our association—as well as its present vitality and future relevance—is bound up in our identity as products of and catalysts for spiritual movements. Whether the Lord has yet another Great Awakening in store for our Continent, our movement is only worth sustaining to the extent we draw upon and continue to participate in the awakening and mobilizing work of His Spirit.

Understanding the Times & Seizing our Cultural Opportunities

Overview: What can we learn from key figures across Christian history that would inform how we can step into the turbulence of our times, perhaps even reaching an inflection point for cultural change and transformation? What are practical ways and enduring principles to light a candle rather than just curse the darkness?
