Event Description

The faith/science mini-conference is an annual collaboration between Bethel University and Crown College that seeks to foster learning and dialogue around important questions at the intersection of Christianity and the sciences.

This year's conference will address Christian perspectives on artificial intelligence and machine learning. The keynote speaker for the conference is Dr. Scott Hawley, professor of physics from Belmont University.

Attendees at past conferences have included employees and students from both Bethel and Crown, local church members, local members of the American Scientific Affiliation, Bethel and Crown alumni, individuals from the community, and prospective students.

The tentative schedule for this year's event includes lectures from Dr. Hawley, an interdisciplinary panel, opportunities for roundtable conversation, and an opportunity for prayerful reflection to close the final session.
