Our Speaker:
Glenn Hoburg is the Senior Pastor of Grace DC- Downtown- a Presbyterian Church located in Washington, DC. Glenn and Meg Hoburg came to Washington, DC in the summer of 2003 to assist with the planting of Grace DC. Their previous ministry experience working with the Presbyterian Church in America’s campus ministry (RUF) at Harvard University, and on the staff of Christ the King Presbyterian Church, Cambridge, MA, encouraged their love of cities and vision for ministry. Glenn had also lived in Boston during the age of spandex while attending Berklee College of Music. Prior to that they attended Covenant Theological Seminary and served on the staff of two churches, Christ Presbyterian in Nashville, TN (1990-1993) and Kirk of the Hills in St. Louis (1993-1997). Glenn and Meg have two teenage daughters, Madeline and Isabelle. The Hoburgs are grateful and enthusiastic for the opportunity to both serve God and raise their family in Washington, DC.

Glenn will be speaking to us about the Family of God- College is often the first time we live away from our families. The primary place where we sought things as basic as food and clothing, and as essential as support and guidance, is no longer right there--and yet, our need for family doesn't go away.  We now have to find it elsewhere. Perhaps for the first time we have to form a new "family". Even if you're commuting to school, there is still a major shift in your relationship base in moving from dependance to independence. In this season of life God doesn't mean for us to live as "orphans", instead he's provided the Family of God. What does this mean at college? How do we learn to be the family that God intends? A place of support, vulnerability, deep commitment, love and service. Our earthly families were to model this, but never serve as the ultimate fulfillment of it. Learning to be the Family of God at school--this is our calling.
