On June 5, 2020 the RPLP will host "How Science Can Strengthen the Faith of Your Church," a conference focused on the relationship between Christianity and science—how each shapes and challenges the other. Headliners will include RPLP director Elaine Howard Ecklund and Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Theological Seminary. The conference is free and open to the public, and we encourage faith leaders from around the country to attend. Registration and more information coming soon.
