Westminster Conference on Science & Faith

Is mankind an error-prone accident of nature or a masterpiece of engineering, ingenuity, and intention? For those of us that believe in the marvelous design of mankind, how might we respond well to those who think we are nothing more than an accident? At this year’s Westminster Conference on Science & Faith, you will be equipped by expert scientists and theologians to answer some of the hardest questions posed by skeptics.

Though speakers will be addressing detailed evidence in various scientific fields, the content is designed to be accessible to a broad audience as well as to scientific specialists. The conference explores the uniqueness of human beings in relation to God, to human society, and to physiology, biology, paleontology, and genetics. Special topics include the image of God, remarkable physiological systems, human sexuality, the future of humanity, the threat of totalitarian science, a Christian approach to teaching STEM, and the relation of the brain to the mind.

The conference is jointly sponsored by Westminster Theological Seminary and Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture and is available for both in-person and livestream attendance.

  • Additional breakout sessions presented by scientists and theologians
