Join us for this conference on the changing face of World Christianity and its implications for the church, academy, and marketplace in the West. As Christianity expands in the Global South, non-Western believers interpret and appropriate Jesus Christ in their respective cultural contexts, offering new and varied perspectives for consideration by Western believers. Join renowned scholars and practitioners as they explore how these emerging perspectives and their presence in our own communities may enhance our corporate understanding and expression of faith. We will also consider the implications of these trends for our own theological and spiritual formation, for our church communities, and for our witness to Christ both locally and globally.

The range and variety of film treatments of the life of Christ is quite extraordinary and includes a growing number of non-Western versions. In this conference, leading experts on film and popular culture, in conversation with theologians and successful practitioners of this intriguing genre, explore screen portrayals of Jesus.

More people are living longer today than in any other time in history. Seniors are the fastest-growing age group in North America. Yet neither church nor culture seems adequately prepared to face the needs, the costs, and the moral consequences of this “grey tsunami.” Join one of Canada’s leading public intellectuals and three of Regent’s own gifted and beloved scholars as they think about the implications and the opportunities that this next great challenge offers us.
Pastors' Conference 2012
overflow—spiritual rhythms and practices that draw from christ's fullness
Date: May 1–4, 2012
Featured speakers: Bruce Hindmarsh, Darrell Johnson, and Susan Phillips. Hosted by Ross Hastings
For so many pastors in our media-saturated and frenetic culture, “running on empty” seems like the inescapable norm. The demands to produce fresh sermons week after week, to equip and to lead in visionary ways, to counsel wisely, and endless other responsibilities reduce us to a spotty spirituality and to sporadic fullness at best. This conference will help pastors gain new or renewed awareness of rhythms and practices that can maintain spiritual, emotional, and bodily health, especially when practised in the way of the gospel and grace, in union with Christ, and by contemplation of Christ.
Heaven on Earth? The Future of Spiritual Interpretation
Date: September 16–17, 2011
Featured speakers: Brian E. Daley, SJ and Kevin V. Vanhoozer
This conference, hosted by Regent College in cooperation with the Center for Catholic-Evangelical Dialogue (CCED), brought together numerous renowned Catholic and evangelical scholars to ask the question: what are the implications if we read the historical, earthly text in the light of spiritual or heavenly realities?
Leading with the Leader: Community, Character and Charisms (Pastors' Conference 2011)
Date: May 3-6, 2001
Speaker(s): David Taylor, Paul Williams, Rod Wilson and Ross Hastings
This conference presented the liberating understanding of leadership as participation in the life of the missional triune God, living out our union with Christ and his work in the world. While challenging the pastor to live contemplatively towards God and in participation with his life and love, this understanding also invites the pastor into community with other leaders, and the body of Christ of which he or she is a part.
