Symposium Deadline Reminder

W. Jackson Watts

Plans are underway for our 2019 Theological Symposium. In our previous post, we shared some general and specific information about this event, and specifically this year’s program. We’re thankful for our partnerships with Welch College and Randall University, who make it possible for us to always have a Free Will Baptist academic setting in which to hold this important event. This year we’ll meet in Gallatin, Tennessee on October 28-29.

This post serves as a reminder to all prospective presenters that paper proposals should be submitted no later than Monday, July 15. We suggest that if you have questions to contact fwbtheology@gmail.com by July 1, though we’ll be happy to answer any other questions after then as well. This year’s theme is the Doctrine of the Church. Papers related to ecclesiology in some way will be given preference in the selection process, though we will consider papers on other subjects as well.

Thanks for your interest in this year’s program!
