1. Common Good RVA Conference


Registration is underway for the 2018 Common Good RVA conference: A Common Good for the Vulnerable.

Andy Crouch, author of Strong and Weak, Playing God, Culture Making, and The Tech-Wise Family, will serve as our keynote speaker during a morning spent exploring this idea:

A common good that does no good for the vulnerable is neither common, nor good.

We’ll also hear from:

  • Carrie Rose Pace, Director of Communications, Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC)
  • Don Coleman, lead pastor of East End Fellowship and former Richmond Public School Board member

Our morning will conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A moderated by Rachel Burgess, Vice President and Director of Research Operations at SIR.

We'll meet on Saturday, March 3rd, 8:30am-1:30pm, at Union Presbyterian Seminary (3401 Brook Road)

Tickets are $15 through February 5th; the price goes up to $20 beginning February 6th.

Childcare is available for ages 2 and up for $10 per child, but you must register by February 5th to secure a spot. Childcare concludes at 12pm.

Your conference registration fee includes a $5 voucher to be used for lunch at a local restaurant (Urban Farmhouse in Scott's Addition or Triple Crossing in Fulton) where we’ll have the chance to continue our conversations inspired by the morning’s discussion.
