Event description

Description

Interacting with literature, film, and postmodern trendsetters, as well as conversing with the disciplines of philosophy, theology, and sociology, Professor Garber has suggested that young people can form a coherent and unified Christian worldview in the midst of an education that is often experienced as more fragmenting and disintegrating than unifying and integrating. At this year's conference we look forward to being challenged by Professor Garber as he encourages us to consider how students must learn to connect belief with behaviour in a way that does not separate the private from the public, or truth claims from life as it is actually lived.

Speaker: Professor Steven Garber

Professor of Marketplace Theology and Leadership, Regent College
BA (Geneva College), MA (Goddard College), PhD (Pennsylvania State University)

Dr. Steven Garber, Professor of Marketplace Theology and Leadership at Regent College, is Director of Regent’s new graduate program, the Master of Arts in Leadership, Theology, and Society. He comes to Regent College most recently from his role as Principal of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Garber completed his PhD in the Philosophy of Learning at Pennsylvania State University, focusing on the connection between belief and behaviour. His dissertation led to the publication of his first book, The Fabric of Faithfulness: Weaving Together Belief and Behaviour. He served for many years on the faculty of the American Studies Program in Washington, D.C., and his contribution to the book, Faith Goes to Work: Reflections from the Marketplace, was born of that institution’s unique learning-and-living vision for the moral meaning of higher education. More recently, Dr. Garber drew on his work at the Washington Institute and years of thinking about the nature of calling and career to author Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good.

Dr. Garber’s conviction that faith must be held together with every part of life has led him to engage deeply in a variety of contexts. He is an advisor and consultant for a diverse range of businesses, foundations, and educational institutions including Demdaco Corporation, Mars Corporation, Murdock Trust, Blood:Water Mission, and Telos Group. His long commitment to the conviction that culture is upstream from politics led him to contribute to the book Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog and inspired him to participate in the founding of Wedgwood Circle.

A native of the great valleys of Colorado and California, Steve is married to Meg. They have five adult children whose own callings have taken them all over the world.

The Christians in Teaching Conference 2019 aims to bring together Christian Educators from all sectors of education (ranging from education students at university, through classroom teachers, current and aspiring leaders, academics and school board members) to be encouraged and inspired for the task of delivering a biblically-shaped education in all forms of school life.

We hope that the conference will provide educators with an opportunity to be stimulated and to refine their teaching practice; for Christian educators to grapple with their theological and philosophical foundations; to leave the conference inspired to continue serving the Lord Jesus Christ and to deliver education that honours him in both name and deed.

The Anglican EdComm 2019 Christians in Teaching Conference is a NESA accredited event.

Completing EdComm Conference 2019 will contribute 6 hours of NESA accredited PD addressing 6.2.2 and 6.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
