2023 ETS SE Regional Meeting Information

Contemplating the Triune God

The faculty and staff at Columbia International University are delighted to welcome ETS members and guests to our campus for the Southeast Regional meeting February 24th and 25th, 2023.

Our keynote speaker will be Matthew Barrett, Associate Professor of Christian Theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The conference theme, “Contemplating the Triune God,” has its roots in Dr. Barrett’s well received work on the Godhead (Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son, and Spirit [Baker, 2021]). He will develop these ideas in the broader context of systematic theology. In addition to delivering three addresses, there will also be time for Q&A following the banquet on Friday evening.

ETS members are welcome to submit papers for the conference. These may follow the conference theme or deal with other areas of Bible and theology. The deadline for paper submissions will be January 4, 2023.

Please see the information below to register for the meeting and submit paper proposals.
