Event Details

 

The ninth annual Society of Vineyard Scholars Conference will be held June 19-21, 2018 in Wilmore, Kentucky, USA. This interdisciplinary, international conference is for Vineyard folks and "friends of the Vineyard" who like to think theologically in community. All are welcome!

The conference will begin at 9:00am on June 19th and conclude at 1:00pm on June 21st. Held on the campus of Asbury Theological Seminary, the conference will be hosted by Great Commission Fellowship, a wonderful Vineyard church adjacent to the seminary.

 


 

 

The overarching theme of SVS 2018 is "Theology and Place." We are inviting dialogue around the many diverse ways that the contexts in which we minister – geographical, social, and political – shape and inform our theological ideas and practices. 

 

What Will Happen At The Conference?

For three days, participants in SVS 2018 will:

  • engage in robust, generous dialogue around dozens of presentations of scholarship and artwork from Vineyard voices from around the world
  • hear from fantastic plenary speakers including Craig and Medine Keener, Eleanor Mumford, Howard Snyder, and Caleb Maskell
  • critically assess significant new books, this year including Michael McClymond's The Devil's Redemption and Flory & Christianson's The Rise of Network Christianity 
  • worship, pray, and celebrate communion together -- led by Adam Russell and others
  • build relationships old and new many of which will become long-term sustaining friendships

The conversations at this year's conference are framed around scholarly and pastoral interdisciplinary reflection on the following themes:

  • Theology and Location
  • Historical Location and Identity
  • Community Life and Leadership in the Vineyard

In addition, there will be a variety of focused, disciplinary conversations -- "SVS Seminars" -- around a wide variety of topics will allow people to engage deeply with others who share a similar area of interest and expertise. This year, some SVS Seminars include:

  • Visual Art and Theology in Dialogue 
  • Writing Vineyard History
  • Trinitarian Shaped Ministry
  • and more...

 

We also make significant time for prayer, worship, and listening to God each year.  We highly value the essential relationship between worship, the presence of God, and the life of the mind, and we live that value out in our time together. Many people have found that God speaks to them with profundity and power during worship and ministry times at SVS. 

 

Finally, we will allow plenty of time at this conference for people to hang out and form relationships. There will be a wine and cheese reception, lunchtime breakouts for people with particular shared interests, and much more TBA. Across the board, our goal is to develop and nurture a community of theological discourse in the Vineyard, and we are committed to allowing the time and space that it takes to do so.

 

Up-to-date details on the conference program are always first available at http://www.vineyardscholars.org/annual-conference/ 

 

A draft program will be posted in late May 2018.

Thanks to the generous support of VineyardUSA, registration fees for non-US based individuals who want to attend SVS 2018 have been reduced to $10 USD, in recognition of higher travel costs for international participants.

Also, thanks to the generous support of Great Commission Fellowship, housing for non-US participants will be provided for as many people as possible. Preference in this housing provision will be given to participants from the Global South.
