What is Perspectives?

The Perspectives Series is an open forum for the Nashville community featuring locally and nationally revered speakers and thought leaders on topics of parenting, education, resilience, and faith. 

The evening offerings are open to all ages and will explore different perspectives of faith in action. Geared towards parents in the Nashville community, the lunch offerings feature topics on the 21st century family. Both are open to the public and free of charge.
