2017 Theological Symposium Program

It’s time once again for our annual Theological Symposium. We’re pleased to be hosting this year’s event on the new campus of Welch College at 1045 Bison Trail in Gallatin, Tennessee. For our out-of-town guests, we recommend you consider booking your lodging at the Holiday Inn Express in nearby Hendersonville. We have negotiated a special rate with them. You may contact them at (615) 824-0022, and let them know that you’re with the ‘Symposium.’ Please contact them by Wednesday, October 18.
