Fall Heads of Houses Conference
October 28–29, 2021 - Chicago
Leading a non-profit, denominational publishing company has never been easy. But with the rapid changes in the Church, in the publishing industry, in technology both for operations and delivery of content and shifting sales and marketing channels, the leaders of our Publishing Company Member houses have plenty to talk about!
This congenial group of Heads of Houses meets at each fall for an annual gathering. This group usually meets over two days from mid-day on one day to mid-day on the next day. The Heads of Houses enjoy sharing updates with one another, learning from one another’s successes and disappointments, offer advice to one another and generally enjoy fellowship in the meeting as well as over meals. Sometimes we invite a speaker on a topic of general interest. Other times, it is just the Heads of Houses themselves.
Our next Fall Heads of Houses Conference will take place:
October 28-29, 2021 in Chicago
Our keynote speaker will be Rev. Dr. Ryan P. Burge, an assistant professor of political science and the graduate coordinator at Eastern Illinois University. He has published over two dozen peer reviewed articles on various aspects of American religion and politics. He is also the pastor of First Baptist Church of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, having served his current congregation for over fourteen years.
Ryan is the author of a book published in March 2021 by Fortress Press, The Nones: Where They Came From, Who They Are, and Where They Are Going
