"If you win the whole world and lose the mind of the world, you will soon discover you have not won the world. Indeed it may turn out that you have actually lost the world. . . Responsible Christians face two tasks — that of saving the soul and that of saving the mind." Charles Malik, Two Tasks.
The 2006 National Faculty Leadership Conference is entitled The Two Tasks, honoring the life and work of Dr. Charles Malik in the centenary year of his birth. We invite Christian scholars to interact with the themes of Dr. Malik's Two Tasks (1980), A Christian Critique of the University (1982), and other works.
The National Faculty Leadership Conference (NFLC) is a biennial gathering of university professors and future professors and their spouses, held over the last weekend of June. Christian Leadership Ministries, the faculty ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, hosts the conference to encourage and equip Christian professors to be more effective for Christ in their universities and academic fields, in their personal witness for Christ to their students and colleagues, and in the integration of their faith with their scholarship.
Plenary speakers include:
Peter Kreeft, author and Professor of Philosophy, Boston College
Dr. Habib Malik, son of Charles Malik and Professor of Philosophy, Lebanese American University
Dr. Walter Bradley, Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Baylor University
Dr. Katherine Bassard, Professor of English, Virginia Commonwealth University
Dr. Swede Anderson, Director of Embassy/Executive Ministries in Eastern Europe and Russia, Campus Crusade for Christ
