Last year over 625 attended from 70 countries. The Toward a Free and Virtuous City (City FAVS) conference examines the moral foundations of personal and economic liberty from a standpoint of Christian Anthropology. The conference applies traditional truths to complex problems facing today’s city, such as the regulatory policy and the role of independent charities and non-profits in combating poverty. The conferences are open to undergraduate and graduate students, non-profit professionals, pastors, professors, business people, and anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the integration of sound economics, rigorous philosophy, and the Judeo-Christian faith.
