Event description
What does religious liberty for all mean in our increasingly pluralistic society? We explore this and more at our upcoming conference.

About this Event

The question of religious liberty is a contentious one in our current culture. Often discussions of religious liberty have the connotation of applying to one religious group, but not others. What would religious liberty for all look like in our pluralistic society?

Our keynote speaker is the recently retired president of the National Association of Evangelicals, Leith Anderson.

We will be joined by various speakers from different faith traditions and ways of life.

Our conference hopes to:

1. Explore and consider the historical backdrop of our country’s formation and present-day complexities surrounding advocating for distinctively Christian freedom in an increasingly pluralistic society.

2. Provide a sound biblical and constitutional basis for understanding the proper relation of church and state.

3. Highlight the missional importance of promoting not only Christians’ freedoms, but everyone’s religious freedoms—including freedom from religion in America today.

4. Help all gathered to consider the prospects and problems in our day associated with the “naked public square.”

5. Address these complex ideas in relation to concrete cultural issues facing Christians and our society at large.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

If you register for the student or alumni ticket, we ask that you bring your student or alumni ID for confirmation.

There are no minimum age requirements, however we will not have daycare so please plan accordingly if you are bringing children.

I'm a student, but not at Multnomah - can I still get the discount?

Yes! Just be sure to bring your student ID along with a picture ID (if the student ID doesn't also have a picture). However, the alumni discount only applies to Multnomah almuni.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There will be limited parking on campus, and more parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. Here is a map of the school.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

All questions can be directed to Sara Mannen at saramannen@multnomah.edu

What's the refund policy?

We do not issue refunds.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not need your physical ticket, just the electronic receipt that will come with a scannable barcode that will allow us to speedily check you in.

Can I buy a ticket the morning of the conference?

You will certainly be able to purchase a ticket the day of the conference - however prices will go up on the day of the conference, and we may need to turn people away due to space considerations. Ordering your ticket in advance will guarantee you a spot and a cheaper price!
