2019 Conference: Friday, Jan. 25, 2019

Is the Bible true? Is it reliable? How do we know?


OKWU is excited to invite the community to join our students and faculty for a deep-dive into the answers for these questions at the 2019 JMI Collision Conference: The Authority of Scripture.

Discussions led by local pastors Dr. Rod MacIlvaine and Rev. James Biesiadecki as well as the Dean of OKWU’s School of Ministry and Christian Thought, Dr. Jerome Van Kuiken.

Community seating is limited for this free event, so make sure to RSVP early to save your spot!


NOTE: OKWU traditional undergraduate students are already pre-registered for this event. Contact your professors for further details.
