NAPCE 2009 Annual Conference
October 15-17, 2009
The Historic Brown Hotel
Fredrick Cardoza- Conference VP
Serving the church and society through
Christian higher education
Featuring Dr. David Dockery
We live in a time of unprecedented change. . . . The growth of human knowledge is incessant and, somehow, accelerating.
The application of science staggers the capacity of our imaginations.
Technology seems near-omnipotent, but its every quantum leap becomes immediately, yet inexplicably, obsolete.
This is the new reality for Christian Educators— our world as scholar-practitioners.
Call for Papers
Please consider sharing your research projects or special studies at this year’s conference.
We invite proposals that address the conference theme and its strands, but also other topics
of general interest to NAPCE members. The research can be empirical in nature or fit
more of a historical/theological model. A high quality of research workmanship is expected.
Questions may be directed to: Jonathan Kim, Ph.D., Associate Professor of CE, Talbot
School of Theology, Biola University, 13800 Biola Avenue, La Mirada, CA 90639. Phone:
