Baylor University Announces an Incredible Program for Global Poverty Conference Oct 23-25

Darin Davis and the team at Baylor University just emailed us to announce their program for their upcoming conference "Bottom Up Approaches to Global Poverty: Appropriate Technology, Social Entrepreneurship and the Church." Its a pretty incredible lineup of speakers, including:
  • Ken Eldred- CEO, Living Stones Foundation Charitable Trust
  • Dwight Nordstrom - Chairman, Pacific Resources International
  • Steve Rundle - Author and Professor at Biola University
  • Ruth Padilla DeBorst - President, Latin American Theological Fellowship
  • Hans Hamoen - Chairman of World Partners Foundation
  • Mark Russell - Hope International
  • Glenn White - Director, Business Without Borders
  • Bill O'Brien - Former Executive Vice President, Foreign Mission Board (SBC) and Founding Director, Global Center

One of the more impressive things about the lineup of speakers is the powerful, diverse lineup of 30-40 professors and lecturers from universities across the country and around the world including: The University of Colorado, Oklahoma, SMU, Boston University, Baylor, Cambridge University, Bradley, Colorado State, Wartburg, William Jewell college, Hope College, Samford University, Cornell University, Messiah College, Calvin College, Houston Baptist, Rollins College, South Carolina, Hardin Simmons, Cornerstone, George Fox, Dordt and Quest University, Tumaini University, Kings University College, Azusa Pacific, Columbia International, Eastern University and many more. Check out the full slate of speakers and their topics for the October 23-25th conference, click here.

This is shaping up to be one of the can't miss events of the fall. As a Baylor alum its exciting to see a university stepping up to address these issues while involving so many leaders from across the country. Like many of you, I'm planning on being there at the conference and looking forward to connecting with others at the event. I'd love to hear from you guys, what speaker or session are you looking forward to the most?
