Hope and Disappointment in the Midst of God’s Call
The Midwest Faculty Conference 2019 will wrestle with real questions surrounding God’s call in our lives – everything from His presence in our daily tasks to broader vocational discernment. In plenary sessions, faculty panels, and a variety of seminars, we will consider the breadth of our life experiences – including success & failure, hope & disappointment, scarcity & abundance. We will also explore what it means to work out our sense of God’s call in a diverse and often complex context, casting a hopeful, Christ centered vision of flourishing within higher education and beyond.
The 2019 InterVarsity Midwest Faculty Conference will take place June 15-21, at InterVarsity’s Cedar Campus(link is external). We look forward to seeing you there!
Welcoming Faculty, Families, Singles and Couples
Faculty of all ages and life stages are invited to join us for what promises to be an encouraging and thought-provoking week! As a “family friendly” conference, our content is designed to connect with faculty, spouses, singles, and couples. Christ-centered programming and recreation is also provided for children. It is our prayer that everyone will leave the week refreshed and prepared to faithfully navigate Hope and Disappointment in the Midst of God’s Call! Meet the 2019 Keynote Speakers, Robert and Erica Romero through a video on the Program page.
What is meaningful to you about the Midwest Faculty Conference? That’s just what we asked Dr. Woodall- Schauffler & Ryan Schauffler in the video below. Last year was their first year attending and, this year, we’re excited to have them return and serve as emcees for the week!
Conference Location: InterVarsity’s Cedar Campus
With 500 acres and six miles of beautiful Lake Huron shoreline, Cedar Campus(link is external) provides many opportunities for recreation- including kayaking, swimming, hiking, and more. Located in the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and only 45 min from the Mackinac Bridge, Cedar Campus is a special place not only for its beauty, but also because tens of thousands of students and families have met God and have seen their lives changed during their time here.
At Cedar Campus, accommodations range from rustic (camping sites & small cabins with a nearby wash house) to resort-style (with kitchen & bath facilities) and from single-family units to multi-room lodges. At the time of registration, participants are directed to a website to browse and choose a housing option. All meals are included in the costs and are eaten as a community in Willoughby Lodge. Recreation activities, cleaning fees, children’s activities, and more are also included in the Program & Housing costs. Wi-Fi is available on campus and at a local library within Cedarville.
