The theme of the conference was “Relocation.”
“Jesus relocated. He didn’t commute to earth one day a week and shoot back up to heaven. He left His throne and became one of us so that we might see the life of God revealed in Him.” -John Perkins, 1982
Andy Bales, CEO, Union Rescue Mission, Los Angeles and CCDA Board Member, spoke on this theme, referencing Christ’s commitment to “relocate” to our world as "incarnational ministry." The group explored both theological and practical aspects of living among the poor, and provided students an opportunity to dialogue about the benefits and challenges of incarnational living.
