What exactly is CLLF?

The Christian Liberty Leadership Forum is an initiative of the OKWU Keating Center, designed to educate a select group of pastors and lay persons from around the nation on the importance of issues of freedom.  Participants in the Forum will learn the Biblical bases of free enterprise and constitutional liberty and how they enhance the ability of Christians to live out God’s plan, pursue happiness, achieve success, and offer loving care to our neighbors.

Why is the CLLF needed and Why now?

The Christian community is a natural ally to embrace and spread the message that free enterprise and constitutional liberty allow individuals and their communities to thrive. These ideas about freedom relate very closely to the biblical ideas of human flourishing.

If we want our fellow humans to flourish, we need to ensure their freedom, so that they can live into exactly who God has created them to be and live more fulfilled lives within the limited context of time.

Dr. Anne Bradley, Institute of Faith, Work & Economics



Through the financial support of generous donors, all Forum sessions, lunches and dinners are provided at no cost to participants. In addition, participants will receive up to $500 travel and expense reimbursement for their actual costs of travel and lodging at the Forum.

Air service to and from Bartlesville, Oklahoma via Tulsa International Airport provides easy access.
