Faith and Research Conference

5th Annual Faith & Research Conference
Missouri Baptist University
April 13-14, 2023 

Vision Statement 

The Faith and Research Conference at Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis celebrates the intersection of Christian faith and rigorous academic research, promoting collaboration among faculty members and students to augment the building blocks of knowledge in the ultimate pursuit of God’s truth. 

Theme: Wellbeing: Being Well … of Mind, Body and Spirit 

As the world emerges from the deadliest pandemic in a century, Christian researchers march forward together with our collective focus shifting to humanity’s personal and collective wellbeing, placing a deliberate emphasis on healthy mind, body and spirit. Building logically on last year’s Faith and Research Conference theme, which focused specifically on mental health, this year’s theme examines our overall positive wellbeing … in mind, body and spirit.

To this end, Missouri Baptist University’s 5th Annual Faith and Research Conference invites proposals for peer-reviewed paper presentations, roundtable panels, breakout discussions and poster sessions addressing topics of faith as related to our wellbeing, including mind, body and spirit. Students and faculty are encouraged to submit proposals interpreting the conference theme broadly and with an eye toward what the various unique research disciplines have to say about faith and wellbeing.

Please see the Proposal Submission link for information and guidelines. Collaborative research presentations between faculty members and students are encouraged.
