The Faith and International Development Conference seeks to educate, inspire and equip students across the country to pursue Christ-centered development.

The Power of Hope

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12

Working in development, we often encounter the brokenness within our world. But because of the God we serve, there is still hope. At FIDC 2017, we will explore how our hope in Christ informs our work in development and hear stories of the transformational power of hope.
