Wisdom Conversations Presented by Cornerstone University

For a full recap of the Fall 2023 Wisdom Conversations event, click here.

As a destination for bold, Christ-centered and influential thought leadership, Cornerstone University is committed to fostering vigorous and courteous conversations with national leaders about some of the most important problems and questions of our day to inspire the pursuit and application of wisdom for the flourishing of our lives and communities.

Hosted and moderated by Cornerstone University, Wisdom Conversations is a series of shared conversations addressing urgent issues of our times and increasing global volatility. National guest thought leaders and experts thoughtfully engage for 90 minutes in a public forum over today’s societal and moral challenges, offering various viewpoints and positive potential solutions for the greater good.

Most important is the foundational belief that the Bible is the ultimate source of truth and knowledge, and wisdom only comes as the result of applying its virtues, perfectly exemplified by Jesus Christ. Together, we can create a beautiful community that honors God and influences the world for His purposes.
