About the Event
God made us in His image, and He made us to create. Christian students and faculty regularly use their creativity to discover new things. We crafted a creative new devotional booklet to help scholars connect faith and work as they discover ideas to help all of us flourish.
Join Dr. Hannah Eagleson, the Associate Director of the Intervarsity Emerging Scholars Network, for an intimate evening to reflect with others on creativity, the life of the mind, and growing in Christ.
This event, organized in support of Hannah’s work with Intervarsity, will feature:
- A ministry update from Hannah
- A chance to explore our new Scholar’s Compass devotional
- An interview on creativity with Scholar’s Compass booklet designer Ned Bustard
- Meet other friends, supporters, and participants connected to Hannah’s ministry and the Emerging Scholar’s Network
