Unfortunately, the speaker for this event has been cancelled due to illness. However, there will still be a planned meal for registered in-person guests. Please check your email for more information, and we hope you’ll join us for a time of great conversation, guided discussion and fellowship starting at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8.


Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) is a pivotal figure in the theological tradition out of which Redeemer University grows, but, for many, he remains a rather obscure theologian from a distant past. But his was a time – not unlike our own – of deep change, a fracturing social landscape, ecclesial controversy and abundant polarization. In it, as his recent English biographer details, he remained both a “theologically conservative” Christian and a “modern European.”

How did he hold true to the theological and ecclesial truths that had been affirmed by centuries and centuries of Christians while articulating them in his own time? Why does this matter? Join Dr. Jessica Joustra, assistant professor of religion and theology, as she unpacks lessons from Herman Bavinck’s life and thought and explains how they might ignite and inspire us to uniquely lead our churches in these times.
