IACE Unveils New Programs at Fourth Annual Conference
ICETE partner International Alliance for Christian Education IACE hosted their fourth annual conference, 8-10 February on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theolgoical Seminary in Forth Worth, Texas. Attendees were able to participate both in-person and online and nearly 200 people joined.
“All three previous annual conferences have been special,” IACE president David S. Dockery said, “but this year’s conference, considered as a whole, was certainly the best yet.”
Membership in IACE now includes 73 educational institutions as well as 26 other organizations and partners around the world.
Dockery told the assembled crowd that current membership numbers have nearly doubled since the initial conference in Orlando in 2020. He also announced plans for a third annual Faculty Development Conference May 24-26 at the Riley Center, urging schools to send multiple representatives.
“Academic officers, deans, department chairs, and newer faculty are all aware of this special opportunity, which has become the highlight of the work of IACE,” Dockery said.
“One provost who was present at this week’s conference asked if he could bring 10 faculty members with him in May,” Dockery said. “We certainly want to encourage multiple faculty from institutions to attend.”
Also announced at the conference: an Evangelism, Discipleship, and Apologetics Conference for September 20-23, 2023, designed for campus ministers as well as leaders in student life and among faculty and students.
