Atlanta Sessions

College and graduate students will meet prior to the start of General Assembly on Tuesday, June 23, at 2 p.m. and will conclude on Wednesday, June 24, at 7 p.m. Students will then participate in General Assembly events Wednesday through Friday evening (and even doing some volunteering!). Conversations, field trips and special presentations will focus on faith and leadership, as displayed in the lives of Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King Jr. This topic is especially relevant as our nation is in an election year. Students will explore how their faith impacts their decisions and inspires leadership. They will delve into key Baptist concepts of religious liberty and separation of church and state. Cost is $70 for five nights and most meals.
