At each event there will be a free lunch for the first 65 people, giveaways and a Q&A time.

Rev. Dr. Craig G. Bartholomew is the Director of the Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics. Formerly, he was Senior Research Fellow at the University of Gloucestershire and recently the H Evan Runner Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Religion and Theology at Redeemer University College in Ancaster, Canada. His academic background is in Old Testament studies and hermeneutics. He has edited and written many books, most recently (2017) Beyond the Modern Age: An Archeology of Contemporary Culture (co-authored with the Dutch economist Bob Goudzwaard) and Contours of the Kuyperian Tradition: A Systematic Introduction.

John Cortines has a professional background in oil and gas, but after writing a book on generosity with a classmate during his second year at Harvard Business School, he took the unique opportunity to join a nonprofit focused on the same topic. The book is called God and Money: How We Discovered True Riches at Harvard Business School, and he has had the honor and joy of speaking to audiences across the country and via national media outlets about their experience.

Dr. Richard Land is president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, a non-denominational seminary based in Charlotte, NC which offers first-rate educational programs in evangelism and classic apologetics. In addition to his presidency, Dr. Land also teaches courses at the Seminary.
