Conversations That Matter

We Need to Talk…

The Institute for Faith-Based Leadership at Belmont University offers a series of ongoing conversations that tackle topics that church leaders increasingly face. 

These conversations confront issues like LGBT and the local church, the divisiveness of caustic politics and gun violence at the local and national levels. The goal of our Conversations That Matter is to provide a safe context in which these conversations can be shared. Our agenda is not to write policy or argue a position but to gather leaders so we can learn together.

Hosted by Belmont’s own Dr. Jon Roebuck, these conversations are intended to help leaders gain wisdom, perspective and maybe even a little comfort along the way.
