Forums and Salons Develop Thoughtful Christian Engagement in Wide-Ranging Topics Throughout Year


Forums on Christian Leadership

Forums occur quarterly, in venues suitable for 100-150 participants. Topics address broad themes of Christian leadership, and keynote speakers will include inspiring Christians who are leaders in their respective fields. These events are excellent networking opportunities among Christian professionals who are growing in their vision, strategy and effectiveness to change New York City and Washington, DC culture for Christ.

Recent forum speakers include:

  • Dr. Robert Louis Wilken, Professor Emeritus of the University of Virginia (pictured, above)
  • Dr. Os Guinness, Author and Social Critic
  • Mako Fujimura, Artist and Director
  • Abbie Killeen, Producer Babette's Feast 
  • Cherie Harder, President The Trinity Forum
  • Dr. David R. Young, Founder and Chairman of Oxford Analytica
  • Dr. Anthony Bradley, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at The King's College in New York City
  • Matthew Bishop, US Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief for The Economist
  • Fernando Cabrera, NYC Council Member and senior pastor of New Life Outreach International


Salons provide an intimate gathering for around 20 Christian leaders at a time to develop strong ties, and interact on a more narrowly defined topic that strengthens either the intellectual or supernatural dimensions of your Christian faith. Expert speakers will go in-depth, but the setting affords participants opportunities for question and answer, and interaction with the speaker, as well as one another. If you are interested in hosting a salon, please contact: cunewyork@christianunion.org.
