Transformational Development Conference
Co-sponsored by Food for the Hungry & Eastern University
St. Davids, PA, USA on Eastern University's campus
August 7-9, 2009

Gathering this August 7-9, 2009 in St. Davids, PA, USA will be a community deeply committed and rooted in God's call to end physical and spiritual poverty. You will not find a crowd that needs to be motivated to serve the poor, nor one that needs to be informed of the dualism that robbed evangelicals of a robust theology of poverty.

What you will find are pioneers on the front line of Christian development and holistic missions. What you will find are academics, practitioners, church leaders, next generation, and bridge-builders who stand between different worlds.

The vision and purpose of this gathering is both contemporary and courageous:
To reshape, realign and reform our ways of development and holistic mission towards transformation in and through Christ.
To further develop a rigorous school of thought and praxis of Transformational Development.

The program will move us beyond convention to conversation to collaboration:
Panel of Respected Plenary Speakers
Dr. Tony Campolo (EAPE), Dr. Rene Padilla (Micah Network, Kairos Foundation), Jaisankar Sarma (World Vision International), Lisa Sharon Harper (NY Faith & Justice), and Benjamin Homan (Food for the Hungry).
40 Workshops based on 8 themes
