Mission & Purpose

The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.

The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.

The conference entitled C.S. Lewis: The Man and His Work, a 21st Century Legacy was sponsored by the Center for Faith and Culture on October 26-27, 2007. More than 250 people attended the event, which featured plenary addresses from some of the most noted Lewis scholars in the world and papers read in parallel sessions from more than 40 scholars.
