Societies are changed by movements at the grass roots


Why is 2016 a historic year for the Wilberforce Weekend?

As the 40th year since Chuck Colson began his public ministry and the 25th year of BreakPoint, 2016 is an important time. It marks a new era for everyone involved in this important ministry. As thinkers, pastors, and practitioners of biblical teaching, this Wilberforce Weekend marks the beginning of something new as we build on the past.

In honor of so many decades of service, This year’s Wilberforce Award will have a special meaning. So, if you have ever been part of the Wilberforce Weekend or The Colson Center, you don’t want to miss the 2016 weekend.
