World Student Christian Federation National Conference

Dear Friend,

Join students from across the US and around the world at the WSCF-US National Student Conference on September 15-18, 2022 at Princeton University. Keynote speakers will include Rev. Dr. William Barber, Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney, and Pastor Jin S. Kim.

Our conference theme “A New Heaven and New Earth” comes from Revelation 21:1, “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” Indian author Arundhati Roy has suggested that this time of intersecting global pandemics might be a portal, a gateway between one world and the next, if we are ready to fight for it.

As the US and world continue to confront the moral injustices of poverty, white supremacy, empire, and ecological devastation – all of which have been further exposed and exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic – how do we, as Christians, organize and build a movement toward the creation of a new world?

WSCF students are committed to exploring ways of living out our faith in this pivotal moment, being radically inclusive, globally engaged, and grounded in prophetic Biblical and theological traditions. Please join us in this exciting student-led movement for social transformation.

Register for the New Heaven and New Earth Conference!
The conference welcomes:

  • Undergraduate and graduate students
  • Young adults (ages 18-35)
  • International students studying in the US
  • Campus ministers and chaplains

Registration for students and young adults is $100 and includes:

  • 3 nights of local accommodations
  • 6 meals (3 lunches and 3 dinners) catered by Princeton University
  • 4 days of conversations, breakout sessions, embodied engagement, worship, small group reflections, and opportunities to connect with other Christian students and young adults from the US and global WSCF networks

Registration is open until September 1, 2022.
