About the Event
God continues to work among Christian students and faculty at universities around the world, despite a global pandemic that has disrupted so much in people’s lives and education.
Join Dr. Hannah Eagleson, the Associate Director of the Intervarsity Emerging Scholars Network, for an intimate evening to reflect with others on what God is doing in student ministry and in areas of faith and science.
This event, organized in support of Hannah’s work with Intervarsity, will feature:
- Christmas harp music, performed by Hannah
- An interview and ministry update with Hannah
- How are Christian campus ministries adapting to the pandemic? A conversation with Angelo Blancaflor
- How are digital ministries supporting relationships and meaning-making for graduates and faculty across the country? A conversation with Dr. Jennifer Wiseman
- What Hannah loves the most about life in Ithaca, New York, where she is now serving local ministries, including:
- Chesterton House, a Christian Study Center
- The Cornell Graduate Christian Fellowship
- Meet other friends, supporters, and students connected to Hannah’s ministry and the Emerging Scholar’s Network
