IAPCHE European Conference 2016

April 12-15 | Biezenmortel, The Netherlands

Welcome to the website of the IAPCHE Europe Conference 2016!

This year, we invite Christian lecturers and researchers in higher education in Europe to explore the issue of vocation. This conference will take us to the heart of Christian Higher Education, asking how we should educate Christian professionals for their future roles in society.

Our key note speakers will focus on the characteristics and conditions of character formation. This conference will bring together outstanding academic research and consideration of current training practices. Throughout, there will be opportunities for hands-on work and personal reflection, allowing participants to share their insights and develop their portfolios.

We welcome all those interested in the connection between employment and religion, including Christian professionals and alumni of colleges and universities. It is our aim to draw on all these perspectives to share and stimulate.

There will be plenty of opportunities to meet, talk and share inspiring practical examples. We hope for a blessed conference together.
