What is the Wilberforce Weekend?

The Wilberforce Weekend is an annual gathering to equip Christians in Christian worldview and cultural renewal. As the flagship event of the Colson Center, the weekend features world-class speakers, networking of Christian leaders, a reunion of Colson Center constituents and the inspirational recognition of a Christian leader with the Wilberforce Award.

Next year’s event, May 18-20, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, will call Christians from the cultural despair prevalent in light of the recent Supreme Court decision and other perceived losses. Like each generation of Christians before us, we must embrace our calling to live out redemption in our cultural moment.

From Theology to Practical Application

Like each generation of Christians before us, we realize that the seriousness of this cultural moment does not change the person, work, and rule of Christ Jesus, who is risen from the dead.

The 2016 Wilberforce Weekend will take Christians from a theology of culture to an application of that theology. Along the way, we will highlight the work of thought leaders and practitioners of restoration in our culture. Following the Gospel story, we’ll challenge believers to champion the good, resist evil, and restore brokenness in our cultural moment.
