Westar Meetings

The Jesus Seminar, the Seminar on Christian Origins, the Acts Seminar and other Westar seminars meet twice yearly at Westar's national meetings. These meetings, usually held in March and October in Santa Rosa, California, are open to the general public and feature a variety of programs and events. Non-specialists are welcome to observe the deliberations of Westar Seminars, participate in unofficial voting and engage in lively forum discussions after the sessions.

National meetings feature workshops and lectures for non-specialists, conducted by Westar Fellows and other leading figures in the scholarship of religion. Guest speakers have included Karen Armstrong, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Robert Funk, Lloyd Geering, Karen King, Elaine Pagels, John Shelby Spong, and Walter Wink, among others.

Westar meetings also include social events-receptions and banquets – designed to foster conversation between Fellows and others in attendance

Jesus Seminar on the Road

While thousands are able to attend Westar Institute's twice-yearly national meetings, many more are not. Consequently Westar created a traveling seminar called the Jesus Seminar on the Road. The Jesus Seminar on the Road brings Fellows of the Jesus Seminar into conversation with interested people across North America and around the world. Held by invitation in churches, schools and convention centers, each event includes lectures and workshops on a wide range of topics.
