As Christians, it is important to be in the world, but not of the world. This means that it is important to be educated about what is going on around us, but not to let the patterns of society control us. As Christians it is also important to see what God says about important world issues, and Q Ideas gives us the opportunity to do just that.
The goal of Q Ideas is “To see the Christian faith become increasingly attractive, credible and influential in the church, our communities and the next generation.” Q Ideas lives out this goal by educating and empowering Christian influencers to restore Christian credibility in Western society. One of the greatest tools Q Ideas utilizes to achieve their goal is their well-known Q Union conferences, which is being hosted right here at Liberty by Student Activities!
The purpose of the Q Union conference is to “Empower students to engage in cultural tensions by providing them the opportunity to address complicated issues, ask helpful questions, and present hopeful solutions.” Students at Liberty University have the opportunity to partake in what Q Ideas is doing in a very special way. For the third year, Student Activities has the pleasure of hosting the annual Q Union conference. Students all around the globe will get to hear from three global speakers discussing important conversations. The 2019 Q Union speakers are: author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell, author and speaker Rebekah Lyons, and pastor and author Francis Chan. We will also have the opportunity to learn from three student speakers that will be discussing relevant issues in their field of study. This night is going to be filled with difficult conversations that will grow us culturally, educationally and spiritually.
Be sure to join us for Q Union on October 24, 2019 at 7:00pm. This is a free event!
