Twenty-sixth Annual National Conference

Reformed and Always Reforming: Faith, Science, Art and Culture

Registration is now closed.

Augsburg College, Minneapolis, MN

October 14-16, 2016

The 26th Annual LFP National Conference, Reformed and Always Reforming: Faith, Science, Art and Culture, will take place October 14 through 16 at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. Occurring in the Fall preceding the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, this conference offers a wonderful occasion to ‘kick-off’ the many and varied events and activities that will occur around the world in 2017. While the religious transformation that came about is probably the most notable of the outcomes from the Reformation, there are numerous other effects that resulted from this call for reform.

Through a blend of plenary presentations, breakout sessions, experiences in the surrounding community, and dialogue with peers, conference participants will be provided a rich opportunity to investigate the Reformation’s varied and lasting impact upon science, art, culture and higher education.
