Remind & Renew is an annual conference held at Phillips Theological Seminary during the month of January. Initially held as an annual Ministers’ Week event, in 2012 Remind & Renew was created, and its purpose is to gather religious professionals and interested publics for thought-provoking and spirit-renewing presentations, conversation, and worship.
Topics and conversations vary from year to year. Participants are able to ask questions and hear stories from leaders in faith communities, scholars, authors, theologians, non-profit professionals, laity, and many more. Two lively worship experiences with great preaching are included at each Remind & Renew conference.
A special guest lecturer is invited to keynote an evening lecture, which is free and open to the public who may not be able to fully participate in two days of conference events and presentations.
