Call for Papers for the Canadian Evangelical Theological Association Annual Meeting in Calgary, May 29, 2016

The Canadian Evangelical Theological Association (CETA) has two theology conferences each year. One occurs at the end of May/early June, in conjunction with the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada. The other (which was inaugurated in 2012) is held in the Fall (usually in October), in conjunction with a local theological seminary or college.

This year both CETA conferences will be in Western Canada, giving the Association an opportunity to reach out to professors, graduate students, and pastors from the region who are interested in theological reflection for the sake of the church.

CETA Congress Meeting (May 29, 2016)

This year the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences will meet at the University of Calgary, and the CETA meeting will be on Sunday, May 29, 2016.

The executive of CETA have extended the deadline for receiving paper proposals for the Calgary meeting until February 15. You can download the extended Call for Papers here.

CETA Fall Conference (October 15, 2016)

The Fall CETA theology conference will be held in conjunction with the Associated Canadian Theological Schools (ACTS seminaries), a consortium of theological schools located on the campus of Trinity Western University, in Langley, BC. The date for the Fall conference is Saturday, October 15, 2016, and the keynote speaker will be Iain Provan, Marshall Sheppard Professor of Biblical Studies at Regent College, in Vancouver, BC. When the Call for Papers for this conference is ready, I will post an announcement.

NES Theology Conference (March 18-19, 2016)

Remember that registration is open for the theology conference at Northeastern Seminary on March 18-19, 2016, with Michael Gorman as the keynote speaker (Gorman will give a public lecture the Friday evening of March 18, and another lecture during the conference proper on Saturday, March 19). The response to the Call for Papers was phenomenal, with the result that there will likely be about forty concurrent papers offered on a variety of topics under the broad umbrella of the conference theme, Participation in God’s Mission. Discounted registration lasts until February 8.
