Mid-America Reformed Seminary is pleased to announce that our annual Spring Conference will be held on Thursday, April 22, 2021. We will welcome to campus Dr. Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD Magazine (a news magazine from a Christian perspective) and dean of World Journalism Institute. Dr. Olasky will be leading us in a series of lectures titled "Christians and American Journalism." In three sessions, Dr. Olasky will give an overview of journalism and a biblical worldview, give a highlight reel of journalism history and the various themes contained therein, and then discuss putting theory into practice, where he'll examine WORLD Magazine's past seven years of reporting on hot-button issues, such as LGBT pressures, abortion, socialism, etc.
The schedule will be as follows (with a break in-between lectures):
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Introduction to Journalism
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Journalism History Highlights Reel
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
