SPEAKERS:

David Zahl

David Zahl is the Director of Mockingbird Ministries and editor-in-chief of the Mockingbird blog. Born in New York City and brought up elsewhere, David graduated from Georgetown University in 2001, and then served as a youth minister with FOCUS (Fellowship Of Christians in Universities and Schools) in their New England Boarding Schools region.

In 2007 he founded Mockingbird in New York City. David and his wife Cate currently reside in Charlottesville, VA with their two boys, Charlie and Cabell, where David also serves on the staff of Christ Episcopal Church. Even after all these years, he’s still mourning the end of Calvin and Hobbes and holding out hope that Axl and Slash (or Morrissey and Marr!) will bury the hatchet. His favorite films have been directed by Wes, Woody, and Whit, and his favorite theologian is probably a cross between Johnny Cash, Flannery O’Connor and his brother Simeon. His current project is A Mess of Help: The Eccentric Soul of Rock n Roll.

Jeff Mallinson

Jeff Mallinson (D.Phil., Oxford University) is Prof. of Theology and Philosophy at Concordia University. He co-hosts Virtue in the Wasteland, a podcast about culture, religion, and ethics that discusses ways to cultivate civic courage and navigate our complex cultural landscape. His book: Sexy: The Quest for Erotic Virtue in Perplexing Times will be published by Christmas.

Additionally, he is an assistant encyclopedia editor, contributor to several scholarly books, and author of Faith, Reason and Revelation in Theodore Beza (Oxford University Press, 2003). He specializes in the history of ideas, especially as they relate to religious epistemology, virtue theory, and the ways in which the riches of the past can help us navigate our postmodern landscape.

With his wife Stacie and sons Augustine (18) and Aidan (15), he lives at Concordia University Irvine as a Faculty-In-Residence for Global Village, a living-learning community that brings international students and American students who care about mission, international business, and global justice. When he puts work aside, he loves to ride his new-era Triumph motorcycle up PCH, identify birds, and enjoy local independent music.


Mike Cosper

Mike Cosper is the Founder and Director of the Harbor Institute for Faith and Culture, where he works to develop resources for Christians living in a post-Christian world. Prior to that, he served for 16 years as the Pastor of Worship and Arts at Sojourn Community Church, a multi-site church in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of Rhythms of Grace (Crossway), The Stories We Tell (Crossway) and the forthcoming The Quiet in the Chaos (Intervarsity Press).

Mike has produced several albums of original music for Sojourn, and produced Songs for the Book of Luke for The Gospel Coalition. He is a regular contributor to TGC’s blog as well.

Mike is married to Sarah, and they have two daughters, Dorothy and Maggie. They live in a shotgun house in the Germantown neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.
