Emerge: a Lecture on Creativity and Faith on in the university's Lecture Hall. The Keynote speaker is Don Perini, associate professor of Ministry and Creativity at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
God has blessed each person with unique talents to assist us in the task of culture-making. One of the best ways to develop those talents is to combine them with creative habits, which results in a phenomenon called creative emergence. This session is for anyone seeking to develop that talent, finish an endeavor, or flourish in a career. Discover your own creativity and how it emerges via creative habits.
Perini graduated from Biola University with a B.A. in Christian Education and went on to earn his M.A. in Apologetics from Talbot Seminary and his M.F.A. in Creative Writing from National University. Perini received the Teacher of the Year Award at Cornerstone University in 2006 and Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers in 2004 and 2005.
Before becoming a professor, Perini served as a Student Ministries Pastor, Sports Pastor, Young Adult Pastor and Creative Arts Director. He founded two organizations, Verge and The Orange Room. Perini has created four games, all of which have been published by Game Addicts, published multiple articles and written a book entitled “Rhyming with Orange.”
The lecture is free and open to the public.
The Crossroads cafe is also open to the public from 5 pm to 7 pm if you would like to have dinner before the event. The cost is $10.50 per person for the buffet.
