“Seek the Welfare of the City” Conference

by Public Relations

Cedarville University’s Department of History and Government will host a conference titled “Seek the Welfare of the City.” The conference will feature guest speakers Jay Richards, Ph.D., and Bob Woodson and will focus on equipping participants to respond effectively to needs in their community and beyond.

In the midst of financial hardships, broken families and violent neighborhoods, many individuals struggle with how to respond to the needs of their community. The goal of the conference is to inspire participants to understand the problems their neighbors face and to learn how to best address those problems through sessions taught by Richards and Woodson, both advocates of equipping individuals to make a positive difference in communities.

Richards has held leadership positions at the Discovery Institute and the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. He is also the author of “Money, Greed, and God.”

Woodson serves as founder and president of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, a nonprofit organization that supports neighborhood-based initiatives to reduce crime, restore families and create economic enterprise.

The event will be held in the Stevens Student Center Event Rooms at Cedarville University on October 31 and November 1 from 7 - 9 p.m. each evening. The event is free and open to the public.
