St. George’s Institute of Church and Cultural Life will kick off the fourth annual C3 Conference with an arts festival on Thursday, March 6. The juried exhibition will showcase visual art from artists across the country. The theme of this year’s conference is Courageous Conversations, which the artists were charged to illustrate in their own unique fashion. The evening will also feature speaker and author Glennon Melton of Momastery, music by Phil Keaggy, and a wine and tapas reception. Doors open at 5 p.m.

In addition to the art festival, the three-day conference will include interactive sessions giving attendees hands-on training on how to have Courageous Conversations involving topics such as family living, medical rights, addiction, and recovery. Offering commentary and insight will be speakers William Paul Young, author of The Shack, CNN Special contributor Rachel Held Evans, and Glennon Melton.
